Goodbye Lawn, Hello Succulents
A lawn isn’t always a bad thing, especially when regularly used by a family. But this Stanford property boasted not one, but two very large lawns – one used, one unused.
In an effort to reduce water consumption, as well as encourage the homeowners’ burgeoning love of succulents, we removed one of the lawns and replaced it with a low-water succulent and cactus garden.
To help tie this new space with their existing, and more traditional style of garden, we incorporated flowering shrubs and perennials among the succulents that were lush and colorful, yet still drought-tolerant and low-maintenance.
