Birding paradise Garden designer Susanne Jett cheered up this Santa Monica lawn by laying down a crisp layer of decomposed granite and planting a showy—yet low-water—border that birds love as much as the homeowner does.
This lovely garden integrates a rain garden. Rainwater is diverted to shallow depressions in the landscape where it filters slowly back into the ground. Beautifully done by In Harmony Sustainable Landscapes.
