Before I began my work at this property, the front yard was only grass.
I retained the slope to the top of the incline of the hill with large boulders and river rock. Two short paths lead from each unit to a small central private patio.
I have used draught-tolerate plant materials which allowed me to eliminate fourteen sprinkler heads, reducing water use dramatically, not to mention my clients utility bill!
The garden is now a beautiful, low-maintenance and eco-friendly space.
Below is a detail shot from inside the patio (towards the left entrance).
