Rock Garden - When the Grass is Not Greener: 10 Plant Alternatives to Spruce Up Your Lawn
A well-groomed grass lawn has been the paradigm of a front or backyard for years. Aside from the fact that it becomes boring to see the same carbon copy of a lawn lining your entire block, there is another critical reason to consider breaking the mold. In areas experiencing severe droughts, such as Southern California, reducing water consumption is a serious matter.

As pretty as any flower - Bearberry Photo by Ron Niebrugge - Pixdaus
This is a fine plant for cascading over the edge of a wall. It's a hardy, prostrate shrub with intricate branching that often forms mats up to 3 feet wide, by runners. Fragrant, white bell-shaped flowers tinged with pink are borne in May and followed later in the season by red berries. The common bearberry's stunning red stems are studded with small, glossy, evergreen leaves.

Front Yard Rock Garden. Even if you don't have a naturally rocky site, you can easily create one. In this front yard, a stone wall offers an ideal foundation and border for a variety of low-growing alpine classics, including Aubrieta 'Royal Blue', Phlox subulata, and Potentilla. Gypsophila franzii and Dianthus 'Tiny Rubies' fill crevices between stones and help to integrate the stone wall with the rest of the terrace garden
