The front yard of my little house with the big rock landscaping and flowerbeds project. I hauled each of these rocks home in my van over a 2 year period. It eventually took 4 years to finish placing all the rocks and adding perennials. Varied annuals added each year.

This is the north garden with a narrow focus. When we moved in 2008 there was nothing, except some ferns and a croton in the right side high bed. Everything your eyes can see was planted during this time. The vines growing at left were planted in five holes dug in the six inches thick concrete.
