Native desert plants populate the courtyard near the garage of this Canadian family’s getaway in the California desert.
”I kill plants, so cacti are our friends,” says Peter Benoit of the row of potted succulents he keeps in his living room. Though he may admittedly be far from plant saavy, he built the customized storage unit himself.
With her drought-tolerant landscapes and permeable hardscape designs, Cassy Aoyagi of FormLA Landscaping has proven her dedication to saving our most precious natural resource. Pavers and succulents in a yard of her design in Malibu, California, help save water.
Space groupings of succulents punctuate the home’s entry path and pool area with mimimal grace at this Marmol Radziner–designed prefab in Desert Hot Springs.
This prefab house in Sin City blends in seamlessly with its picturesque desert setting, as if it’s been part of the landscape all along.
For the past 30 years, landscape architect Steve Martino has been committed to the development and advancement of landscape architecture in the Southwest. The red yucca, brittlebush, and prickly pear at this Palm Springs, California, home plays well with the southwestern climate. Says Martino: “Native plants let your garden tap into the food chain—it becomes a habitat while connecting you to the history of a place.”
