Side Yard Solution

This side yard was originally sodded by the builder, but since it was a drainage corridor from the front yard to the back, it quickly became a soggy mess.   A flagstone path was laid at the lowest point of the drainage corridor.  Gaps were planted with a low maintenance ground cover that could absorb and withstand temporary water flow.  The perimeters of the path were filled in with a tapestry of  low maintenance perennials and shrubs.  This difficult to maintain eyesore became a beautiful and useful feature of the landscape.
