3544 Ocean View Avenue - Cluster 2I

These homeowners are not big gardeners by any means. They wanted drought tolerant landscaping that requires very little maintenance. 

After landscape designer Cynthia Upstill (Wells Garden Design) presented a few options they replaced their lawn with evergreen clumping grasses called sesleria caerulea, which only need watering twice per week. They also enlarged the hardscape by adding more field stone, a larger bed of pebbles surrounding a maple tree and replacing the lawn on the parkway and driveway strips with decomposed granite. They added several other drought tolerant succulents, shrubs and grasses to their planting beds.
