Evergreens and grasses screen gravel sitting area from neighbors. Beautiful trellis by Indio Metal Arts will support roses. Flagstone and boulders naturalize the hardscape.

Epilobium, blue oat grass, Manzanita and hebe are great for xeriscapes!

Planting under big trees is possible if you pick the right plants. These heucheras and hostas are happy here.

This landscape is so drought tolerant that only the rose and the grass in a pot were watered this summer. The rest of the plants survived Oregon's unusually hot drought with no problem. Three years was enough to establish this mix of natives and ornamentals.

This retaining wall with capstones on top doubles as a seating area, protected from the street. A circle of steel containing gravel forms an affordable and easy to maintain space for a chair or fire pit.

An unusable wooden deck was replaced with this Highland manufactured stone retaining wall. The shade is from Costco. The Ashlar style paving pattern is more elegant than the standard single-size block. Evergreen Maidenhair Vine covers the back wall.

By adding additional space and soil to the bed under this Big Leaf Maple, drought-tolerant plants were able to establish themselves.Try Hostas, Epimediums, Brunneras, Heucheras and Siberian Carpet if you have dry, part-shade.

This established drought tolerant landscape doesn't need water anymore (except for the roses and pots).Native California Fuchsia and Manzanita anchor the design.

Before landscaping, this front yard had too many weeds and an unusable slope. Also, old, low-quality landscape fabric made it difficult for anything good to survive. We regraded, added retaining walls and paths and a hidden patio. Now the client has a lovely seating area hidden from view.

Mature trees can be difficult to landscape under because they suck up all the water and shade out the sun. After this picture, we extended the planting bed beyond the old retaining wall and this allowed new plants to thrive with some irrigation.
