A blissful landscape...

funny. when we purchased the new french abode we were incredibly excited about the prospect of a large yard. a few months in we came to the realization we do not like yard work, do not want to use up a ridiculous amount of valuable water in order to to keep the traditional grass green and did i mention we do not like yard work?

the solution? lots of rock, cement, potted plants, cactuses and other drought resistant plantings. after researching the topic a bit and gathering inspiring photographs, i can now safely say we are looking forward to the prospect of a beautiful, low maintenance landscape.

images such of these are the inspiration for our upcoming project...wish us luck...
