Water-Saving Garden

Host Matt James transforms a large desolate backyard into a beautiful drought-tolerant garden.

  • The homeowners want to create an area for entertaining and relaxing surrounded by drought-tolerant plants that thrive in the dry, desert-like Los Angeles climate.
  • This attractive new space incorporates about six tons of gravel, stone and paving to help cover the large backyard.
  • The plant material reflects the climate of the area.
  • Tucked behind the garage are two raised vegetable beds complete with drip irrigation.
