View from patio to landscape that never needs water

This side of the yard was the sunniest and the driest. Here, we raised the beds with soil that drained very fast to create spaces to plant very drought tolerant plants such as yucca, sedums, dianthus, palms & lavender to name a few. Here is also where we used colorful rocks that she desired. The pink rock you see is a mix of quartz and pink quartz. The tiny grey rock is a shale. In the background, you might recognize the flower of astilbe that was planted in the shady wet swale that ran in front of the existing leyland cypress hedge.
