This modern, Southwestern style home gets a front yard makeover. The homeowners are concerned with water conservation in the summer months, so the designers used their desert surroundings to inspire their design. Because of the dry soil, erosion is always a worry, so a gabion wall was installed in the back of yard to help stave off any erosion issues. Flowerbeds were then added around the steps leading to the front door. Those beds were filled with desert plants that can easily handle the lack of water they will receive in the summer months. Then, landscapers added stones instead of mulch or grass to fill in the beds and in between the driveway and the stairs to keep down the reliance on water and to give the design a desert feel.
