Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Stop Fighting the Patchy Lawn!
It’s always important to carefully research the plants before you buy them to make sure that they suit your conditions. Clay soil is different from sand or rocky loam, and while some plants may do well in several kinds of soil and light conditions, others won’t. You may also prefer plants that create short drifts rather than tall ones, or vice versa, or clumping plants instead of aggressive spreaders. When you take the time to carefully match the plant to the site and your region, you’re setting yourself up for more success and beauty with less maintenance — unlike sowing grass seed over the same area year after year.More: How to Replace Your Lawn With a Garden
Dig Your Garden Landscape Design added this to Fire-Wise Landscapes Can Help Keep Your Home and Property Safe
Planning Your Landscape Protect your home and property by incorporating fire safety guidelines and “buffer zones,” called defensible spaces, during the landscape design planning stages and beyond. These guidelines usually include the use and proper placement of fire-resistant plants and trees and other fire-resistant materials that you can incorporate into the landscape areas surrounding your home. Creating defensible spaces is also critical for safe access by firefighters.

I like the causal look. Would like a tree in front

A great example of the variety of the placement, color and texture we'd like in the hillside plantings.
