English Garden, California Style

Traditional Landscape, Los Angeles

After a tear-down/remodel we were left with a west facing sloped front yard without much privacy from the street, a blank palette as it were. Re purposed concrete was used to create an entrance way and a seating area. Colorful drought tolerant trees and plants were used strategically to screen out unwanted views, and to frame the beauty of the new landscape. This yard is an example of low water, low maintenance without looking like grandmas cactus garden.

    Is the reason for the switch to pea gravel that the creeping thyme/baby's tears died? I have a west-facing yard as well (northern cal) and would like to do a creeper around stepping stones, but I'm worried about the afternoon sun.

I like the closer, lower purple plant better than the farther, taller, spiky inflorescense plant.
