Indigenous materials were used almost entirely to create this garden with minimal paving. Stones pulled from the ground were utilized to construct retaining walls, steps, and stepping stone paths. Gravel and decomposed granite were also used as a means of reducing storm water runoff and preventing pollution and sedimentation in the nearby ocean. In this picture, trailing Rosemary spills over a stone stacked wall along a gravel parking area and is punctuated by Blue Agave.
