I love this dramatic before and after. Before the land sloped toward the house, creating unusable space and water issues. On the plus side, we had these beautiful large boulders to work with. Instead of spending all the budget moving them, we opted to carve two small patios around the existing boulders. Check out the before and after video:

Year 1, just after planting
Year 2, some grasses have grown in along with Agastache 'Blue Boa', Coreopsis 'Zagreb' and Echinacea. Starting to resemble the pollinator paradise it was designed to be!
