Goldfinches jostle in the desert willows of this recently planted Modernist rain garden. The focus of the sloping 1,000 sq. ft. front yard is a pebbled dry creek, artfully interspersed with succulents and native grasses, along with a permeable driveway of impressive symmetry. The drought-tolerant back yard, in conversion to more natives, is also worth a peek. A Surfrider Ocean Friendly Garden. Design: Tom Rau Landscape Architecture. Photography: Philip Otto Photography.
