Love!!! If I had a huge garden !! Landscape designer Alan Fisher says, "Water-wise gardening doesn't mean you have to plant only natives.

This dramatic garden has been designed with limited rainfall in mind. Huge clumps of Agave americana, with its distinctive pointy leaves, combine well with the lime-green heads of Euphorbia and the bold pink flower spires of sprawling Echium, while Gazanias provide a pretty border in the foreground. The emphasis on form and texture provides an excellent contrast to the clean lines of the contemporary architecture.
