The banana and palm trees were already in the front yard when the owners bought this house. But the ground was covered by thirsty greens that needed to be watered three times a week with a sprinkler system. The driveway was all concrete and the DG was old.
The garden owners wanted a sprinkler-free, drought resistant garden and had a very specific idea of how it should look. They hired sA'di architecture & landscape to realize their vision and sA'di worked with Forest Green Tree Service as the installer. FGTS removed the concrete from the driveway, put down a thick layer of DG and recovered the DG on the old path to beautifully integrate the driveway with the front yard.
After the owners turned off the sprinklers and removed all the dead ground covering, weed cloth was put down. The owners covered the blank areas with river rocks, and planted succulents that they grew from cuttings.
Irrigation now is primarily by hand if needed.
