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.
