The Lawn is Gone

This garden in Oakland was planted in spring 2014.  The lawn was converted into a native garden enhanced with non-native succulents and drought tolerant perennials.





The lush and cheery feeling this small garden evokes encourages bees, butterflies and birds to stop in for pollen and nectar from flowering perennials. Coyote brush, Yellow current, Sticky monkey flower, Coral bells and Santolina are among the native perennials in bloom.

  3. That is absolutely a fascinating idea to convert the yard into a large garden. If I couldn't see the house, I would probably assume that your plants were wildflowers out in the foothills somewhere. What are the light green/yellow plants you have in the first photo?

  5. I also have a huge garden area that is being infected by the pests nowadays. Some suggested me to hire professional pest and Termite inspection Port Macquarie services instead of using home remedies. Do you think the professional services would be beneficial?
