A New Paradigm Workshops One and Two

We did a complete front yard transformation at a residence on Foothill Road-- lawn to a native and succulent garden with DG as the hardscape wherever there aren't mulch basins or plants. We did this project in two workshops (earthworks and planting) and it was such a complete make over we called the workshops A New Paradigm One and Two. Here are the photos that show the process and the results.
