Hi, What is the big water bowl made of and where can I buy a similar one from? Thanks Mandy A
That is a papyrus plant. It does like plenty of water, so place it as an accent and near other plants that can tolerate the same moisture levels.

I love the spanish feel in this yard

cluster of small objects. That's obvious here, where the saucer-shape water feature dominates (but doesn't overwhelm) this Spanish-style courtyard. Its dimensions are practically the same as the arches across the loggia, unifying the water feature with its surroundings.

From the street, a round rock pathway leads to a small seating area next to the water with a small fire pit. Low maintenance, drought resistant and salt tolerant plantings were used in mass and clumps. This garden has become the focus of the neighborhood with many visitors stopping and enjoying what
I'm wondering if you use irrigation or water in the summer time?
Very Very Beautiful! I also live in the PNW. Will the Blue Oat Grass and the Thymus survive without watering during the summer? I am looking for something low maintenance and eco friendly. If they dry out that's ok
what are the tall dark red flowers on the right in front of what I think is ceonothus? It's all so beautiful!
On the right side of the path, there is a clump of tall reddish-brown spires. They are in front of the ceonothus, and in between the two grasses.

Back Yard Shade Garden
lynnlandscapedesign.com - Back yard shade garden using classic garden favorites, including Hydrangea, Heliotrope and Ajuga. A path from the pergola leads to a tennis court behind the trees. Working with the arborist employed to maintain the oaks on the 4 acre property, care was taken to plant and irrigate
ground cover in front of the hydrangeas
I grown hydrangea's in my front yard and wanted a nice ground cover to plant in front of mine, but was never sure what to use. Thank you

what are the low growing ground cover plants along the edge?

including the basin, $36k install, plus 15% for design. Thanks for noticing. CM PS I never could get the owner to cut off the copper risers at the water surface level as was my intent?!?!?
beautiful water feature for front of home.
Grass less yard with water fountain. No fish. Easily maintainable and we can play in it!
love water spilling over into pool
beautiful patio with or without water feature
fountain on water table spilling into wading pool
An elevated "table" of water defines a large courtyard, adding energy with an upward burst of water down the center. More movement occurs as water spills over the edge of the pool into a receptacle below, where it is recirculated.

THIS is the water feature I've been looking for!
Low water, shade, and water feature. Plus, it looks like Italy.

traditional pool is a cool and low-maintenance entry in this Southern California home. While most of the plantings are influenced by Mediterranean style, the hydrangeas prove it's possible to add some of your favorite plants, even if they aren't quite authentic.
Incorporate water and plantings. Just as
as misters keep cool those in the queue at the amusement park, a fountain, pool or other water feature will definitely keep the surrounding air cooler. And plants act as shades, blocking the sun's rays before they reach the ground.

A grove of Japanese snowbell trees and drifts of shade-loving groundcovers give the front entry of this contemporary house a woodland feel.

Hey Nice Garden
New Perennial Style
In Oakland we designed a small front yard that packs a lot of color. This new perennial garden is low-water and provides a lush setting in contrast to the wide open walkway to the front porch. The clean symmetry of the path is offset by the wild display of flowering plants.
like the light green airy fine plant (green core lighter at the ends) have some, they are low maintenance for larger areas
Great use of low water plants - probably needs more specimens that have winter interest but love the look of everything tightly planted.
love the local wild flowers of poppies, and low profile.
grasses and colors in front, path is a little to wide
Flowers at front (as border) and tall grasses behind.

Basalt Retaining Wall, Bluestone Stairs + Entry Path
Stone retaining wall for front yard. Would complement blue exterior paint.
We like the retaining wall here. Ours would be reversed, of course. And rather than having a fence and gate, we can have a hedge of low shrubs/grasses.
would be a great transition from driveway to front yard...and again from backyard to field

blocks or poured concrete. A wall higher than 18 inches will likely need to be backfilled with gravel and a French drain to relieve pressure caused by water buildup. Be sure to check your local guidelines for wall height, as you may need to install a railing for safety.
