Narrow side yard features a gravel path with inlaid "stepping stones" made of metal circles embedded in the gravel and ringed with Mexican black pebbles. Inside the stepping stones are plantings of dwarf mondo grass, 'Sunshine' creeping veronica, and Corsican mint. Plantings include natives such as evergreen huckleberry, mountain hemlock, sword fern, and deer ferns.
This is a custom designed succulent wall.
This striking green wall is a site specific landscape that incorporates a variety of plants with contrasting color, texture, and form.
It has a built-in irrigation system which means literally minimal maintenance for the homeowner.
