Landscaping the Front
( we have also finally disposed of the wooden retaining wall in the back that he told us was a fire hazard)
I have found that iris grow well at our place and they don't require much water (always a concern since we have to haul our water from the water station - we don't have city water or a well). Iris are a good plant for fire safety - they really do not ever burn well. I have gradually been adding a stone patio and terraces to the front to create more living space and a place for my growing iris collection. Above, I have dug this new flower bed terrace this spring to create a place for replanting all the perennials that had to be removed during our reconstruction of the terraces in the back.
