Welcome To My Junipers
Yes, it is a lawnless front yard. Yes, it's certainly drought-tolerant. Yes, it's neat and decently maintained, and there's not a whole lot to have to maintain, either. It's also a whole lot of Junipers.
Looking carefully, I saw that behind the wall, there are tips of more junipers rising towards the sun. It meets all popular goals of water-thrifty, hydrocarbon-thrifty, cleanliness, and so on, but it doesn't meet our expectations of contemporary style. It does make a statement. A really big Juniper Works For Me statement.
The driveway is also lined with potted Junipers, though I did not get a photo. I was beginning to get a little juniper-ed out. But not meeting expectations rather puts a smile on my face. Neither the expectation of a rich green lawn, nor the expectation of the latest and greatest in lawnless garden design are met. This homeowner found something that satisfied them, and went with it. All the way.
