This is a small condo backyard which was originally a steep hill and was not a useable space. We terraced with stone and created 2 seating areas.The main outdoor living space now has an outdoor kitchen and stone fireplace. The garden includes succulents, seasonal color, and drought tolerant plants.

The yellow flowering shrub is Tagetes lemonii or as it is commonly called 'Mexican Marigold'. Some of the other plants are Salvia chamaedryoides, Salvia Leucantha and Aloe striata.
