Enticing Entry Before


The owners were tired of watering the front lawn and wanted to add some curb appeal to their mid-town home that would reduce the water demand of their landscape.


The Solution

The front walkway was demolished and we worked with Mac Hicks and his team at Zona Decorative Concrete to give the space an updated walkway.

We directed gutter downspouts to popups in two large basins. We planted a lush mix of native shrubs and trees in the rain basins and accented the berms and mounds with cacti and succulents. Now their front yard is a lush, native pollinator garden with a variety of color and texture! Native rabbits like to hang out under the large deergrass.

The perimeter fence was crafted by Kevin Blackwell of River Lane Remodeling.
