Chapucas exterior and rain garden
Took a couple pictures this weekend and then went back to this photo & rendering I had done before the construction. Glad we went with the black trim. The model and all the drawings were done in Archicad.
The rain garden has sure taken off. I've had to do a lot more watering than usual due to our dry weather. Each weekend I do a little more planting. It's been hard to just stick with a few types of plants...I'm more of a color and texture experimenter when it comes to choosing landscaping. And it's looking a bit chaotic, but I'm having fun. The Ben Moore gray siding is a nice backdrop for the different grasses and plantings.
If you look closely you can see the cats lounging on the walkway. Being strictly indoor cats, they have been loving exploring the garden and just being outside.
