Homeowner Thomas A
Location San Diego
Yard Front


The front yard’s grass was replaced with an aesthetic water-conscious landscape. Most of the new drought tolerant plants are cuttings provided by neighbors. The design and work was done by the homeowners who included a rain barrel and redirected a downspout into the landscape. They also included a bee house to shelter bees.
