Stone walls and walkways: West Chicago landscape renovation, xeriscaping concepts
Pre- renovation. Greenery covered much of the front, and a tired block wall. HAD to go!
the final product a year later. Xeriscaping used here (drought tolerant species for this hot south exposure, plus passive solar with a deciduous maple allowing full sun in winter- much needed shade in the heat of summer. Eventually casting shade on the sunniest part of the home.
