I took some intermediate pictures of the front yard. It should be finished by Tuesday. I think it looks lots better in person than it does in the pictures and I probably should have shut the garage door.
I'm very happy with it and it is a very little maintenance yard. Also I like that it reflects the desert where I live.
The gravel in this area will be the purple, but smaller.
There will be a peach flagstone pathway with purple gravel where the plastic is. I found a bench and a piece of yard art. But those won't come in till Tuesday. The bench will go under the tree as much as possible.
The area in front of the two bedroom windows will have columbine and bleeding hearts and maybe some other plants.
This shows the ocotillo up. And the more delicate cacti and succulents that will need to be covered in the winter.
Ooh yeah. Should really have closed the garage door!
The succulents in the little pot are susceptible to frost as are the 4 little cacti behind them. /they will need to be protected in the winter. but they are so pretty!
Just another view.
Most of the front of the house. After the back yard is done I will see about replacing windows.
