While looking for the rose garden I’ve posted on, I drove through the same neighborhood I spotted the Mexican Gold Poppy plants. Then I saw this, among some more typical front gardens for the region.

There’s something about the simple repetition / layering of the broad steps, then the small plants much of the lengths. (a dead Italian Cypress on the far left…)
How about an evergreen shrub or accent plants out front…just one?
Good color and playfulness in the tiles.
How about some small agaves (A. victoria-reginae) or damianitas tucked in to the steps via making some gaps there?
