Billy Goodnick added this to Give Curb Appeal a Self-Serving Twist
Lawn alternatives, as in this garden in Santa Barbara, California, are an increasingly strong trend, especially in low-rainfall climates. After removing the existing turfgrass, the designer created an abstract interpretation of a creek using ornamental grasses and colorful succulents. Where the garden meets the street, the plants become denser and more massive, providing a backdrop for the broad swaths of foliage texture.

4. Re-imagine the lawn. Political leanings aside, traditional lawns consume a lot of water, require a lot of care and sometimes just aren’t the right fit. Consider lowering your water bill and increasing your garden’s biodiversity by swapping out sod for a native grass, shrinking the edges of the lawn or eliminating it entirely. Just look at this lovely front yard lawn conversion, filled with blue fescue and echeveria.See more: Get Along With Less Lawn — Ideas to Save Water and Effort

Like the creek look - strong alignment of plants - esp the fescue. Don't like the red plants.
