In 2008 this front yard was a sloping lawn which was killed off and
rototilled. This 4,000 sq. foot garden is now composed of four
interconnected ponds and two waterfalls and a drip irrigation system.   
About 90 % of  the garden is native or drought tolerant.  Dragonflies,
monarch butterflies, hummingbirds, bullfrogs and mallard ducks
frequent this garden which is in the process of being certified as a
Wildlife Habitat Garden. Listed below are some of the plants in Steve's
