This garden was installed in 2007 after a complete home remodel. The homeowners decided to forgo turf and plant drought-resistant plants throughout the front yard. Their goal was to create a natural environment that would encourage local wildlife, and to have an ever-changing “show” throughout the year.
With the help of a friend (Hilary Fonda Webb, owner of Bella GardensDesigns) they chose a variety of plants that would bloom at different times and provide constant change as they moved through the seasons. It was important to them to choose plants that encouraged native butterflies and birds to visit on a regular basis.
Despite the fact that the garden is in the front, it provides a feeling of tranquility and it is one of their favorite places to sit.
