Dry Creeks in Dry Conditions

Dry Creeks in Dry Conditions Image

During our current Northern California Drought and these Dog Days of Summer...we get lots of calls from people who want to eliminate their brown lawns. Essentially they want to figure out a way to conserve water, lower their water costs yet still retain an attractive landscape. So what do you do with such a large space as a typical front lawn? A lush green lawn can take up to 70 % of your front yard landscaping! What do you do let the lawn die and cover it with a sea of colored rock or cheap wood mulch?   Well no, not if you have any style or design sense and pride in your property. Here are some nice examples of creating dry creek beds as a focal point with accent plantings around the sides and throughout the creekbed design.

The design concept is to replicate nature as closely as possible and make it appear the creekbed and surrounding plantings were always there and the house came later.

They did what they said they were going to do, it was all pre-planned, very receptive to our suggestion regarding changes. Alan was very cooperative during the process and the staff was very professional.

They're very prompt, very polite, easy to work with, and when they're here, they just go about their business. I also like some of the suggestions they gave me.
