Backyard Bloomfest


In November 2019, over 2,000 sqft of lawn, gravel, palms, oleander, & other non-native plants mostly replaced with various California native plants & cultivars featuring:

  • a decomposed granite (DG) seating area bordered with small boulders

  • Garden-tolerant CA native plants with emphasis on year-round flower/foliage color and neat growing patterns

  • a winding, raised path made of decomposed granite (DG) leading to patio

  • Battery-powered irrigation timers that automatically waters with high-efficiency sprinkler heads (no electricity required)
