Limestone Drive

Site Analysis

Kara & Tom were wanting a xeriscape garden that still allowed space for their dogs, gave them privacy, and included a small sitting area. In this cute area of Erie, Colorado we applied our landscape design skills to give them everything they hoped for!

Project Goals

» Create a xeriscape garden

» Include a small sitting area

» Allow for space for their dogs

» Add privacy from neighbors



    To create a xeriscape garden »

    • Embellished the front with builder-basic plantings with a more curving turf layout, boulders, and steppings stones to complement the xeriscape plants

    To include a small sitting area & allow for space for their dogs »

    • Took advantage of the natural drainage to create interest with a dry creek bed and connected a small patio area with the dog grass with an interesting flagstone bridge

    To add privacy from neighbors »

    •  Worked with some columnar varieties of plants and strategically placed trees to frame views and create a sense of enclosure without making the yard feel even smaller
