APLD 2010 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

What appealed to us most during the garden tours was practical mastery versus floral majesty.  We saw centrally-pivoting gates, a variety of paving, low-mow & grow lawn substitutes, celebrated water storage and recycled materials as garden art, and comfortable outdoor porches. Drought-tolerant plants are commonplace in lieu of thirstier plants, but the Dan Kiley Fountains at the base of the IM Pei Building was spectacular! Visited at night, it is magical.

Part of this garden's charm was its roof garden as seen from below.

low mow
This wasn't an unsual sight to see unmown, short grasses in Dallas. This is a particularly nice-looking use of it.
