Description for Arcbazar of front yard project
We live in West Los Angeles. We recently had our front lawn removed because our water fees have increased significantly over the last couple of years due to water rate increases our utility company has implemented a result of the drought California has been experiencing over the last many years. We want to reduce our water consumption to decrease the fees we pay for water to our utility company. Therefore we are going to install foliage (plants and trees) that can tolerate drought conditions well.
We have recently put in flagstone in roughly half of the front yard on the western side of the two terracotta walls. We do *not* want you to design that area. Also, we intend to keep all of the current foliage shown in the photos and videos. Therefore, please do not suggest that we remove any of the existing foliage.
We want two areas designed: part of our front yard and our parkway depicted in the photos at:
The section of our front yard we want designed is also shown during the approximately four seconds of the following video:
from 1:41 to 1:45 of the video. That is from the one minute and forty-one second mark to one minute and forty-five second mark of the video.
In other words, the section of our front yard we want designed is the dirt area between the two terracotta walls to the west, and the white picket fence to the east, and the driveway to the north and the miniature pine tree and one of the two large wooden planters to the south.
When you submit your design to us, it must include a grassy area surrounded by drought tolerant plants. Your design must not include any cactuses. Instead, please include low maintenance, colorful plants similar to those depicted in the photos at:
