I've had a hankering for a no-grass front-yard landscape for awhile. I think I was just waiting to be referred to the right person & company before getting started.
And the after: cleaned up flower bed (some existing plants stayed), new flowers, 2 geometrically shaped pathways to both driveways, and pebbles in the place of grass. Our house really seems to "pop" now.
At first the front yard looked so stark compared to what it was previously. I took this picture of my sisters the day before the landscaping began. I love crepe myrtles, but this one just wasn't placed right, especially given the power lines.

However, the clean look has definitely grown on me. I love having a solid path to each driveway. And I love not having the grass to mow and feeling like it constantly looks shabby or overgrown.
Mick and some of our new flowers...
which he has enjoyed watering daily!
