This garden in Lakewood was installed a few months ago and looks really nice.  I was a bit worried that the extreme summer heat we have had this year would cook most of the plants, but luckily I was wrong.  The plants are mostly ornamental grasses, with a decomposed granite path.  This video shows you the entire garden.

This garden was installed a few years ago and I have done a few videos about it, but I wanted to do another update as I was certain that is heat wave might have killed a few plants.  Sure enough I was right.  Check out this video to see what this garden looks like now.

I love killing lawns and love it even more when I don't have to convince a client to get on board with me.  In this case the client had let his lawn die and wanted to replace it with mostly California native plants, a few non natives and a path to get around the garden.  He also did not like the look of traditional bark mulch, so we experimented with using gravel as mulch.  Topped with some fun accents this garden really looks great.
