This very large garden is designed primarily for asthetics. The owner’s foremost consideration was colors and textures. Eco-Nomical Landscape certainly achieved this goal!
A blooming cactus stands sentry at the front entrance
Wide swaths of gravel separate islands planted with cacti, succulents and other drought-tolerant plants. Even in winter, there are spots of color and the backyard is fragrant with the aroma of orange blossoms.
Only a few backyard trees remain from the original landscaping. They are joined by several fruit trees. A large flagstone seating area provides a vantage point for enjoying the garden.
