From the tour brochure:
After the 2008 drought, the homeowner felt compelled to see if she could create a pleasing garden with many challenges: deer, no irrigation, poor soil, and rampant weeds. The median in front of the house demonstrates this and has become a community project for the neighborhood.
This was a good idea to turn what is often an overlooked space into a garden the community can enjoy. The challenges are outlined above and below you see the results.
Mexican Feather Grass in the breeze, Blackfoot Daisy (oops flowers), Opuntia
Iris is xeric and the foliage stays green year round. Agave in front with Rosemary back under the prickly pear
Silver ponyfoot with Baja beach stones
A mulched path with newly planted trees and solar lights. A plant list was provided but I did not get the names of these trees.
Relax and enjoy this pretty spot in the neighborhood.
The cushions are pretty, I'd guess they don't stay out all the time. It is nicely done though.
