Spruce up a front yard (after) Homeowner Troy Bankord redesigned the front yard to accentuate the existing diagonal sidewalk. (The emphasis on the diagonal also made the shallow setback seem deeper.) He added a diagonally placed wall between the driveway and the garden and planted islands of plants near the sidewalk.
A tapestry of succulents replaces the old turf. Designer Kendra Berger used 5 kinds of aloes, two types of aeonium, Bulbine frutescens, Agave attenuata, and lots of blue Senecio mandraliscae to play off the Moroccan blue of the pots.
