Len & Robin felt a water-efficient landscape was a practical choice – both ecologically and economically – and were drawn to the colors, textures, sculptural shapes, and patterns of succulents. They designed the layout and installed all of the water-wise plants themselves.  The drip irrigation system was professionally installed, and their lawn was removed by landscapers. The time spent researching the plant selection and layout, which include a stunning array of colors from the Cassia Tree, Senecio, Crassul and Calandrinia grandiflora, and the hard work of digging holes and spreading a mountain of mulch paid off when people stopped by to offer words of encouragement and compliment their results.
