A native garden in San Diego

This San Diego County garden was not the high point of the neighborhood. What to do with a garden that is weeds, no fun, and looks awful?

Plant it in Native plants!
Here's the quote from the customer: "I have to say that I have been so happy with Las Pilitas' stock! I have over 80 plants from Las Pilitas and have only lost 4 plants so far (due to external factors)! One of these days, I will take a drive up to Santa Margarita to see the original nursery."
