Many residences in Southern California struggle with drought conditions and water restrictions.  This Burbank, California resident wanted to remove the traditional parkway grass and re-landscape with a drought tolerant parkway.

The grass was removed down to past the roots to prevent regrowth.  Drip irrigation was installed and connected to a timer for carefree maintenance.  Dwarf Junipers were planted.  These low-to-the-ground evergreen junipers stay close to the ground, spread out a bit, and are easy to maintain.


The new design did not remove the tree.  Instead it was incorporated into the beautiful new parkway with river rock and a treated wood border.


Finally, decomposed granite was installed, along with flagstone steps.  A very clean, easy landscape that is also mindful of water conservation.
