What Houzz contributors are saying:

As frequent travelers living in a drought-prone area, Martin and Clarke needed a self-sufficient garden with drought-tolerant plants. The couple worked with designer Caroline Dawes and Stuart McHaffie of Garden Partner to create a low-maintenance landscape fed by rainwater tanks. The couple wanted the layout of the backyard to reflect the house, so the decks and gathering areas are all set at different angles and use many different materials. When Clarke isn't on the road, her favorite place to be is on the patio, sitting on a beanbag with the fire lit and looking back at the house. "I always think: I live here; that's amazing; it's beautiful," she says.
