Low Water Landscaping
We were excited to help remodel the Sunset Smart Cottage Garden at Cornerstone Sonoma. The mission was to design a narrow side garden in the full baking Sonoma sun, with a full shade front garden. A challenge, yes, but with Sunset plants, it's easier than it looks.
Phormiums have become icons of Mediterranean landscapes, although they hail from New Zealand and require a bit more moisture than sometimes expected. Here, the bronzy colors of Phormium 'Firebird' combines nicely with Leucodendron 'Safari Sunset', with the flowers of drought tolerant Arctotis underneath.
