3630 Wade Street

There was a major house fire in 2010. All the burnt debris from the front of the house was dumped onto the front lawn area that night. They homeowners had talked about eliminating the front lawn before and decided to use the clean up after the fire to do just that. 

Right now, the cardboard flat mulch is in its second year. They are also starting to add some drought tolerant plants into the mix around the fringe of the old lawn area along with existing plants and trees they love: a 30+year old pink hibiscus; some star jasmine; dark blue agapanthus; king and queen palms; kaffir lime and blood orange citrus; various grasses; sage; giant bird of paradise and bird of paradise. Solar pathway lights sprinkled throughout add a soft glow at night. 

Rain chains off they deck and rain barrels in the side yard capture rain water.
