With not a lot of space to work with, this mature yard is extremely well designed and a delight to look at.
Dymondia ground cover is extremely drought resistant, yet provides a durable green carpet. The yellow flowers are yarrow, which attract ladybugs and other pollinators.
A wide variety of plants make this yard so colorful.
Very small dry creek, and a well-placed stone, give this yard great accents.
