Low Water | Lush Effect
Concord - CA
This revitalized garden was once a sea of lawn and high maintenance perennials. The homeowner desired a lush garden without the need for time consuming maintenance.
The answer was a combination of permeable paths and berms filled with lush, evergreen plants from Australia and South Africa. These plants keep their foliage throughout the season and sport nectar rich flowers that are adored by pollinators. Succulents are interweaved throughout the beds to contrast with the softer foliage.
Maintenance is now a quarterly activity leaving more time to sit end enjoy the garden with friends or as a quiet retreat.
