We are happy to make daily, positive contributions to the water conservation efforts in California and are even happier to see how Californians in general are making great efforts to do the same. By using a variety of succulents and other plants that drink responsibly, beautiful rocks, boulders and decomposed granite, we are able to accomplish the task of water conservation while still creating beautiful gardens for our clients.
[dropcap style=”book”]T[/dropcap]he Fall Garden Party at Waterwise Botanicals was a huge success! Hundreds of succulent enthusiasts enjoyed perfect weather, inspiring and informative talks and the opportunity to purchase Jeff Moore’s fabulous new book, Under the Spell of Succulents. Our own Laura Eubanks was front and center under the Big Tent delighting the crowd with her Succulent Tapestry demonstration!
After walking the nursery and choosing her favorite specimens, she assembled a signature tapestry live and on stage while giving design tips, care instructions and advice for handling the various plants in her palate. At the end of the presentation, nursery owner, Tom Jesch, announced that one lucky winner could win her Succulent Tapestry Garden display in a raffle, sponsored by the nursery, in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more information!
Finally, as promised, we are including a list of the plants used in this demonstration, as well as a few important pieces of information on acquiring and using rocks in your tapestries. See just below the photo gallery for the information on rocks. For now, enjoy the plant list and ensuing photos!
The rock yards that we use most are KRC Rock, Southwest Boulder & Stone, and Bedrock Boulders & Landscape Products. All are located in San Diego County and have detailed information on their websites (accessible by clicking the company’s name in the previous sentence). Don’t hesitate to take a trip out to the rock yards, ask a ton of questions and take home some sample rocks to see how they match up with your landscape!
