How NOT to Landscape Your Home

I must first thank my friends Marlana, Nora, and Kim for inspiring me to post this. I have spent a good deal of my time landscaping as well as helping people design and enjoy their landscapes and I must say that I have had to deal with a client or two who has wanted to landscape their yard in a manner that were not always in my taste. I won’t go into details but if you are a friend you probably know about my venture into Disneyland….

None of the clients and friends that I have worked with can compare to some of the designs that I (and my friends) have driven by. So… here for your enjoyment is an assortment of designs (none of them are mine) that I dub, “The Hall of Shame".

Yes, these ARE plastic flowers and the fish are...well VERY interesting!

I welcome your comments; this could be a lot of fun!

I believe in saving water, so why don’t we just paint a bunch of gravel green and pretend it is a lawn?

In case you weren’t sure that it was gravel…

Since we are getting close to the border, why don’t we go with a Southwestern theme? Or is it a design that can double as a game board?

Nora and Marlana share photo credit with me on these…

Richard Meltzer, rockcrit extraordinaire, once wrote a book caleed "The Ugliest Buildings in Los Angeles." He listed the addresses alongside the architectural horrors with captions like "Santa's Doody-colored Misery Box."

Perhaps this inspires you to your own "what not to do" tome?
