this photo album shows the sites just after installation with a follow up photo underneath showing the plants filling into the landscape about a year later.
this photo is an example of how much a landscape can fill in within a year of planting. once the plants get established, they really begin to grow into their own and the full vision of the original design reveals itself. the original landscape was planted by Apiana Native Landscapes and we maintain the site on a monthly basis.
This beautiful native front yard slope with 6 fruit trees at the top is less than a year old and hasn't been watered (by municipal water) since last fall. The top image shows the space just after installation and the bottom picture is less than a year later showing the plants established in their environment. The shower drainage system was retrofitted into a greywater system and there is a rain barrel on the side of the house to harvest the rainfall. The dry creek doubles as rain tank over flow and shower greywater catchment which directly feeds the fruit trees.
