A Fabulous Yard

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Winter Borders


This spectacular small garden marries beautiful colors, shapes and textures. The bright orange Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthus 'Orange Cross') cheerfully contrasts with the silver-gray Lamb's Ears (Stachys byzantina) and Blue Chalk Stick (Senecio mandraliscae), while the addition of the graceful and airy, lime-green Mesquite tree provides an overall elegant intimacy to the area. Reminiscent of the desert, the mix of sand, boulder and geometrically planted succulents creates a serene and peaceful feeling.

All plants are drought tolerant, deer and rabbit resistant. Created by Debora Carl landscape Design, this low maintenance and water wise garden is absolutely fantastic!
