Arid Style Garden. This is what's come down to with my garden/landscaping in Oklahoma.

A. parryi got its nickname "artichoke agave." Dusty blue leaves provide a cooling foliage foil to their usually dry and arid native landscape. Wide, fleshy leaves are topped and edged with sharp black spines, making the plant especially beautiful but potentially posing a landscape hazard. Simply site the plant out of arm’s reach if that is a concern.

Planting a conventional turfgrass lawn is not a water-wise solution in the arid West. Nor is paving a big area always practical, since that much hardscape creates a lot of heat and glare. But if you lace paving stones with ribbons of native buffalo grass (Buchloe dactyloides), you'll achieve an eye-calming "soft patio" effect that needs much less water than a traditional bluegrass or fescue lawn.

Southwestern style gardens, also referred to as Santa Fe style, are very natural and reflect the arid, sunny climate of the southwest. Similar to xeriscape landscape design, southwest designs feature native plants. Native plants can be colorful and vibrant, perfect for lively outdoor living spaces that require very little water or maintenance to thrive.

Privacy for the backyard. Add a pergola separately, but with style to add height. Plant some beautiful vines to cover as much or little as you want for added privacy in your backyard. Great for those with second story homes surrounding them.

What a great way to cover up exposed roots and dirt patches under the more porches the merrier!

Nice perennial garden but the star here is the fantastic flagstone steps & flat stack retaining wall.
