Landscaping before and after– Zero Maintenance Rock Garden造景前後–零維護的岩砌花園造景

Landscaping before and after– Zero Maintenance Rock Garden造景前後–零維護的岩砌花園造景

It was said that it is not possible.  Here is the example I made it happened.

很多同行說這是不可能的任務,但是我做到了.

Well selected plants so no watering is needed.  Tidy up the old growth in spring and fall still needed if you can.  I do not control wind…

精心挑選合適的植物是有必要的. 可以的話稍微打理一下枯枝落葉還是比較好. 風還是帶來不少落葉的.

It was so dark and weedy, neighbour kids were afraid of coming for trick or treating in Halloween.

很暗又雜草叢生,鄰居家的小孩連萬聖節都不敢來要糖.
