This garden is located in Carlsbad, CA (Sunset Climate Zone 24). We removed 600 sf of lawn and shrubbery from the hillside and replaced it with primarily native California plants and native Australian plants. As is normal, some changes were made in the field and we swapped out and mimulus for trailing lantana. After removing the lawn, we spread an 1" of compost over the entire site and amended each planting hole with compost. Most plants were purchased in 1 gallon containers, ground cover came in flats, and the trees were in 15 gallon pots. All irrigation was switched to 1/4" drip with emitters at each plant.
