As I have written here before, I love killing lawns and replacing them with plants and various other features. In this case the homeowner's had already removed the grass and anything else that they did not want to keep. They also a ton of colorful rocks that were left over by the previous owner that was perfect for repurposing.
In this case we added decomposed granite as the major pathway, California native plants, a dry creek bed and other fun accessories. The homeowner's also built a light box of sorts to add another dimension to their garden. The actual construction work for most of the garden was done by a referred licensed landscape contractor.
This video is a peak into the garden. Enjoy!
