And how to create an outdoor space like this of your own.
This stunning front yard combines a variety of succulents and cacti, along with decomposed granite to create a low-maintenance and water-wise front yard. The three Euphorbia Ingens, nicknamed candelabra cactus, set a dramatic stage to welcome guests. Surrounding them are a variety of aloes, agaves, and prickly pear cacti. The nectar-rich orange blooms of the aloe attract hummingbirds and pollinators to the yard, proving a drought-tolerant green space can still be pollinator friendly.
Any home gardener can get this structured, low-maintenance look.
