About This Project
This garden includes a new decomposed granite patio and fountain to view from all rooms in their wrap around hacienda style house.  Easy maintenance no-mow fescue blend turf added for a relaxed lush look.    
  • Remove 2500 square feet weedy turf grass
  • Create an open area to entertain
  • Resolve rooftop patio drainage problem
  • Change foundation plantings
  • Add a fountain for focal interest

Once the weedy turf was removed, the space was quite large and needed balance and softening at its perimeter. Boulders and curves brought everything together.

Addressing a drainage issue without utilizing gutters or downspouts, but instead capturing the roof runoff  into a stream bed and sending it out to the new no-mow turf area.

Materials Used
