New Zealand Garden...
A rolling berm, boulders, fruitless olive tree and robust shrubs and perennials provide separation between the house and street.
This progression shows how the forgettable lawn and scraggly yucca have been replaced by a colorful canvas of ground covers punctuated by spiky fortnight lily, Mexican sage and Jerusalem sage. The vibrant gold Mexican marigold hugging the corner of the garage is the only remnant of the previous landscape.
Another set of views of the evolution from dull to spectacular.
What a difference a year makes!
