Another traditional Fresno front yard that was mostly grass with small flowerbed perimeter. We removed the grass and all existing plant material. We imported topsoil to create elevation changes in an otherwise flat space. We reused the owners existing boulder and reset them in new locations. Drought tolerant plants used include Palo Verde, Strawberry and Desert Willow Trees, Thyme, Orchid Rockrose, Sagos, Lavender, Agapanthus. The lilac colored Verbena adds needed color contrast in the foreground. The landscape is irrigated with drip. Forest humus was used for mulch.
