Desert garden with a view

The garden makes up to a quarter of the value of a home. This Orinda focal garden and container upgrade added contemporary flair before the house went up for sale. Water hungry grass was exchanged for a rain-catching dry garden and an unused side yard was transformed into a hidden quiet garden.

  • Water-wise succulents & grasses for drought-prone area
