thinking gardens

So were still waiting on titles... our block has been pegged out and ready to go for about 3 weeks now. not sure what the hold up is? to stop me from going insane I have started to focus on what our garden will look like. Our estate guidlines require the use of only native or drought tolerant plants , so with that in mind I went for a look at our local Botanical Gardens for inspiration.
we were thinking of using mondo grass in the front yard instead of regular turf.

I love the look of layering in the garden
this is going to be our water feature.
we have started growing our own clippings and  yukka pups
so that they are well established for when the house is finished.

The spray on grass has gone down on our block and everything is looking finished. not sure what the hold up is now? Im still being told settlement wont be till April. :-(
