After: Southwest Style
The homeowners hired a landscaper to replace the lawn with mulch, drought-tolerant deer grass, and a mix of succulents. Mesquite saplings planted during the remodel will eventually shade most of the yard, creating a cool hangout spot for guests. Painting the brick shaved years off the house, and warm white is the perfect backdrop for the tall grasses and cacti framing the entrance. With its wider path and clean lines, the new walkway is much more welcoming.
