This garden replaced a huge lawn. My clients had differing tastes. One wanted succulents and Cacti, the other a Mediterranean feel. They agreed in wanting a dry waterfall (a Japanese landscape design concept) and dry stream. I integrated these styles by designating the dry stream as the location for the succulents while giving the surrounding areas a more Mediterranean feel. The winding paths of DG (decomposed granite) lend a crisp crunch to your step as you meander through the garden.
