Lawnless Front Yard With Semi-Circle Driveway
This yard fronts a completely remodeled, significantly enlarged contemporary style home in a neighborhood of traditional ranch styles with large lawns. A half-circle drive takes up most of the space. The planting area, a smaller half-circle, is divided in two by a pathway of rectangular concrete pavers set in riverstone. The little conical containers on either side of the path are too small, seems to me--even though the area is small, it is not that small. A pair of decent sized oil jars or pots would have been more in scale.
The right half of the area is anchored by a variegated Agave americana. (The pot on the pillar needs some help!)
...while the left half is anchored by a Palo Verde tree and two clumps of Euphorbia turucalli 'Sticks On Fire':
Smaller succulent plants make up the rest of the vegetation. Unfortunately our common and irksome weed, Oxalis pes-caprae, is invading the area. I had an intense and powerful urge to knock on the door and ask for permission to weed.
Overall nice, if you can pardon a lot of concrete, and time for some maintenance, please! Please!
