This yard is really interesting. The homeowners went from boring water-wasting lawn to a colorful water-saving garden.They kept a lot of their existing planters and many plants, though it looks like the whole yard was renovated. In addition, the nifty wood flat slats next to the driveway adds a new walkway without removing any existing concrete. We like the color here.
