12251 Herbert Street - Cluster 6

When the owners purchased this home, it had a typical 1950s aesthetic: a grass front lawn between the street and the front windows with a small hedge in front of the house. 

They wanted to remove the lawn, provide privacy from the street, and create an interior focal point from the home looking out. 

After removing the lawn they installed a row of plant and wooden structures along the sidewalk and an interior decomposed granite pathway with a large tree and stone as focal points.

All of the plants are low water/drought tolerant and come from arid environments worldwide.
