Desert Landscape

One of the major ways to drought proof your landscape is by removing your lawn. If your lawn is dry and patchy, there are two solutions. The first, is to receive a sprinkler system tune up with a smart water timer! The other option is to remove your grass and opt for a xeriscape. Many water districts in Southern California will actually give a drought tolerant landscape rebate for grass removal! The water savings will be very noticeable. Instead of a sprinkler head spraying a wide area of grass, drip irrigation can apply just the right amount of water to each individual plant.  Mulch or wood chips retain water and keep the soil around the plants from drying out.

Decomposed Granit

Decomposed Granite Soil Landscape

Decomposed granite (or DG, as it’s nicknamed) is a fine gravel formed from the weathering of igneous rocks such as feldspar, quartz, and mica. To earn the DG label, gravel has to have small particles (typically no bigger than 3/8 inch). Decomposed granite is a soft material that will blend in with the borders of planting beds. Because the gravel particles are small, edging material can be flush to the ground. Decomposed granite is used as an area rug, to define the perimeter of an outdoor room or seating area. Decomposed granite is a local product and its color range typically mimics that of nearby landscape rocks. The range of colors varies from buff to brown, and also includes shades of gray, black, red, and green.

The variety makes decomposed a versatile hardscape material. It is easy to choose a color to match or complement other hardscape materials.

Decomposed granite is a low-cost material–from $40 to $50 per cubic yard is the typical price range–and can be used as a border for a more expensive paving material. Its soft, natural coloring visually widens a space without competing with other hardscape elements.

Like mulch, decomposed granite deters weed. It last longer than mulch (which breaks down in a season or two) and is a stable surface that won’t wear away.

Decomposed granite is a permeable surface that will prevent rainwater runoff and (unlike grass) requires no water, making it an eco-friendly choice.

Decomposed granite is a low-cost alternative to stone, brick, or tile. For a large hardscape project such as a driveway, decomposed granite is also a low-profile material that blends well with other materials. It’s a natural-looking surface that quietly recedes into the background, ceding attention to more dramatic landscape elements such as stone or turf.

What Are The Different Types of Retaining Walls?

Gravity Retaining Walls

Gravity retaining walls are one of the most basic and common types of retaining walls. Gravity walls rely on a combination of block weight, connections, depth of buried wall, and wall setback to hold back soil. These mortarless, yet structurally interconnected retaining wall systems also permit water drainage to prevent hydrostatic loads. Gravity retaining walls are normally used in non-critical applications, where final wall height will be under 36″.

Reinforced Structural Retaining Walls

For taller walls, 3′ to 50′, retaining wall blocks are combined with soil reinforcement products such as geogrids, earth anchors, or galvanized steel grid reinforcing. These additional reinforcement products help to create larger composite reinforced soil structures. With a properly designed and engineered combination of products, the reinforced soil mass can support greater earth pressure and surcharge loads.

Free-Standing Landscape Walls

Freestanding landscape walls are simply decorative walls that are most commonly used for yard division or decoration. Freestanding landscape walls are not designed to hold back soil as is the case with retaining walls.
