Homeowner Michael M
Location Escondido
Yard Front


In transforming his landscape, Michael M decided to introduce plants that require less water than the conventional grass turf that once covered the front yard. He also wanted reduce his water usage because he  has a pool. Converting his yard had great results – reduced water usage and people kindly give compliments. The bright succulents, mighty agave, deep green pine tree, and the rose plants that line the windows help brighten this yard in a Southern California friendly way.
