DESERT OASIS DESIRED - Backyard Landscape
JUST A BUNCH OF GRASS
WE WOULD LIKE TO MAKE OUR BACKYARD LOW MAINTENANCE AND WE WERE PLANNING ON USING CACTUS AND DROUGHT TOLERANT PLANTS.ANY IDEAS FOR THIS HUGE L-SHAPED BACK YARD ABOUT 60X60 FEET?
Without getting into the details of specific plants, I would consider doing the following for your backyard landscape.
1. Use tall plants against the wall to hide it and make it more of a green space. There are vertical gardens you can create....similar to green roofs, but vertical.
2. When adding plants against the rear of the house, I would use trees in the corners to frame it and add some height.
3. How about one or more shade trees in the lawn?
4. In an area that is a visual focal point from either where you sit outside or a view from a window, add a water feature. It can be as simple as a bird bath with running water.
I hope this has given you some useful ideas.
"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant. You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
