We finally finished the Front... Sort of

Suzi AKA DesertDanceJune 12, 2014

Are you ever really finished? The front yard was just dirt. Nobody here has grass (except for one neighbor, and he works constantly and it just looks terrible). We are in a drought. Most here have gravel and native stuff.

But we are golfers, so this is a beautiful, water conservation, and no maintenance solution.

We are adding bark to the planting beds by the fence, and extending artificial turf cut around a flagstone path to finish the back portion of the yard. The pile of rocks at the end is the beginning of a waterfall that falls into the pool below.

If you are interested in a DIY job, I outlined the entire process at the link below. We hired a contractor. Cost about $6500 in Southern California, but we are adding to the job, of course!

Looks nice with your trees, and keeps the view open.

Hubby built a little project to go with the putting green. It holds many of the excess random putters we have acquired over the years. He put some leftover putting grass at the bottom. Looks really cool. I'll try to post a photo, but that has nothing to do with landscaping.

Neighbors love the look of the green! A welcome change to an otherwise brown world.
