Country Hillside Modern
A little California in Kentucky, this house is very modern and deserved a complementing modern-with-a-country-twist landscape. Variegated yucca, ‘Karl Foerster’ Reed Grass, ‘Buffalo’ Juniper, and boulders provide structure, while mingled with natives and native cultivars of coneflower, liatris, wild blue indigo, amsonia, and prairie dropseed grass. Equisetum planted in barrels buried underground (to keep it from spreading into undesired locations) was installed this year. Lime thyme is planned to be added in the empty spaces to provide full coverage and less maintenance. This drought tolerant, hillside planting attracts butterflies with mass of color and has nearby milkweed and other natives for many species of butterfly hosting.
