In this landscape, we wanted to create a lush, yet very natural and less formal feel. The landscape needed to be both low-maintenance and water-wise. We blended lush groundcover plantings in shaded areas with heat hardy and water-wise perennials and roses. Extensive stone pathways, patios and a stained concrete driveway make this landscape standout. We also created a series of streams and fountains to create a relaxing backyard retreat.
