The Meadow Solution

Bright colors through out the seasons makes this meadow much more interesting than the lawn it replaced.
Boulders and manzanita soften a masonry privacy wall, while a dry creek bed improves drainage.

Deer- proof and drought-tolerant native plants such as ceanothus, redbud and pitcher sage encircle the meadow of California fescue and Berkeley sedge planted with Pacific Coast iris and a colorful collection of bulbs from Mediterranean climates around the world.
