Forgoing grass, the Schroeders created a beautiful, low-maintenance front yard on their West Texas lot. Note how they used a flagstone path to enhance their landscape's rustic feel. Garden Tip: Use billowy grasses to help soften the cold, harsh feel hardscaping can have in your landscape. To make the yard truly low-maintenance, select native plants or those adapted to your region.
Big on features, not on grass Bridges, islands, and a shaded fireplace add plenty of whimsical details to this Albuquerque backyard—no water necessary. And a smattering of carefully chosen drought-resistant plants offer just enough no-fuss greenery to create a lush feel.
