Carmel I  / The owner of this hacienda-like home wanted a garden that invited lingering, that attracted hummingbirds and butterflies, and that looked as if it had always been there. The highlights of this landscape renovation include an outdoor dining and cooking area, an outdoor fireplace with trellis, a tiered boulder fountain that provides sound and movement (plus a place for impromptu doggie dips), a designated dog wash area, and a guest cottage courtyard enclosed by a low stucco wall. The garden's diverse and colorful drought-tolerant plantings and succulents were chosen for their bold textures, year-round interest, and dynamic movement. Flowering vines add fragrance and color. Pots with citrus, succulents, and other plants complement the patios and main courtyard, adding to the charm of the space and increasing the sense of indoor/outdoor living. The boulders throughout the garden were sourced locally on a special trip to the quarry with the owner.  Photo:  Lepere Studio
