What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Blue Chalk Sticks
How to use it. “The chalky blue color is striking with greens and dark purples and is a great foil to splashes of hot orange,” says designer Jamie Morf. Whether you plant this spreading plant as a groundcover or a container plant, freely use it to highlight contrasting golden tones — notice how well the blue foliage of the Senecio complements the rich red color of the single container in this garden.Thriving in well-drained soil, go as far as to plant Senecio in a gravel bed for the ultimate in clean design. Whether lining a garden path or framing a courtyard, the foliage of Senecio mandraliscae gracefully cascades in from the edges like an approaching textural wave.
Debra Prinzing added this to Teach Your Landscape Rhythm
Long bands of concrete that alternate with gravel form the floor of this entry garden. There's a lot of dynamic energy in this space, as repeating bands of different textures (smooth concrete and fine-grade gravel) invoke the idea of rhythm.
June Scott Design added this to How to Replace Your Lawn With a Garden
4. You would like to spend less time and money maintaining a lawn. With the average homeowner spending 150 hours per year on lawn care, it’s no wonder that the no-lawn movement is gaining popularity. Depending on the composition of the plants chosen (and whether low-maintenance ground covers, such as gravel, are incorporated), a shrub- and perennial-dominated yard should take between 25 to 75 hours a year to maintain. Select native plants or those compatible with your region’s climate and soil, and you’ll save on fertilizer, herbicides and other items as well.
