Lawnless front yards part one

One of the questions I get most often is how to pull off the front yard with no lawn. A lot of people love the idea of saving water and being more environmentally responsible, but just can’t get a clear picture for what that would look like and how it could possibly be beautiful. So I’m going to start scouting beautiful lawnless front yards in and around San Diego.

This is one on a steep hill in Point Loma. The house itself has a slightly Asian appearance. I love how they pulled off a beautiful front yard with only four different types of plants: Loropetalum Razzleberry, Plectranthus, Black pine, and a groundcover echeveria.
