Barbara's succulent and drought-tolerant yard was birthed by the water shortage but became an opportunity for artistic expression.

The birth of Barbara's succulent and drought-tolerant yard was generated by the water shortage, but became an opportunity for the artist to mix color, texture and a wide variety of succulents to create a real-life landscape canvas. Jack painstakingly hooked up a drip system for 62 individual plants in the yard AFTER he moved the electrical system for the fountain from one side of the yard to the other. Once Barbara had moved the plants a million times to her satisfaction for balance (wait, she still moves plants when she gets a better idea!) Jack painstakingly (once again) covered the front and back yard with 250 bags of mulch. This 'Queendom' as their son has so aptly named the yard, has become a peaceful place that soothes Barbara's body, mind and soul on the weekends, after a week of working as a therapist. As the plants overpopulate the yard, friends are gifted with the extra plants and sometimes even have their entire space landscaped. Just check out the neighborhood, and you will see her signature style! Welcome to the solitude of color, running water, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
