Xeric Pollinator Terrace

Our client was having a hard time mowing the grass on this sloping area of her front yard, so we decided to build a terrace along the sidewalk. This xeric pollinator terrace provides several benefits:

  • Rain water retention
  • Food and habitat for pollinators
  • Weed suppression
  • Custom soil mix for new native transplants
  • Aesthetically appealing
  • Easier to weed (less bending over required)
A new drip irrigation system was installed to improve plant establishment, with the goal of tapering water use significantly after the first two to three growing seasons.
