Mediterranean Garden in San Anselmo, CA

This San Anselmo, CA landscape in Marin county was completely redesigned to replace a large portion of the thirsty lawn. I created curving paths and adjacent areas using decomposed granite (DG) and flagstone. The plantings include CA native plants and other drought tolerant plants chosen to provide year-round color and appeal. Something is always in bloom in this low water, Mediterranean garden!

Thank you for your nice compliment! We set the main flagstone, from the front gate to the home's entrance in decomposed granite. And used it in between the flagstone as well. We included a stabilizer to make the DG firmer. We chose this method vs. concrete to provide a permeable surface for rainwater. These pathways adjoin to other pathways and patios throughout this landscape. More images and info for this project on my website. http://www.digyourgarden.com/portfolio/sleepyhollowretreat.html
