She tore out 20-year old residents, starting with a renegade bird of paradise that refused to behave in the front. She moved on to tackle unkempt junipers (with all kinds of yuk), and then hacked out obstinate hedges. That all was pretty brave, since she was clueless about plant science. BUT, Home Depot with a liberal return policy – was right around the corner. Today, the front is a cornucopia of trees, succulents, and shade plants. She removed all grass in the backyard. Then, she used old bricks to border the yard with trees, shrubs, palms, succulents and evergreens, and added an island for the little guys. Next, despite hubby’s deep concern, she took a sledgehammer to the patio and recycled the concrete chunks by incorporating them into the border. Lastly, she planted vegetables; added ground cover; incorporated paving stones, with dichondra interwoven, and filled the spaces with river rocks. Ahhh.
