Some great details about Steve's Garden:

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 landscape:
