Here are two different stories on a drought-tolerant garden designed by Echo Landscape Design in Sherman Oaks. The front and back lawns were removed from this corner lot to make way for more water-efficient, and much more interesting, plants. The owners also took advantage of a DWP rebate and received $1 for every square foot of grass that was removed from the yard.
It was featured on the NBC program LXTV Open House: LA at the time of the installation. The video can be seen here.
Later, it was selected as a project for the Los Angeles Times “Pro Portfolio” column. You can read it here.
