Desert garden design has its challenges. Placement of an Organ pipe cactus can significantly add to frontal house charm if done well. Landscaping involving lawns that require constant watering have little aesthetic appeal, but design that works with native plants accustomed to the harsh climate have more to offer. This image (photographer unknown) captures a property supporting the less is more approach to garden design. There is just something about its minimalist cactus, rock, shrub formation and the shapes created, that give it a somewhat 70s retro appeal. It’s a garden that most people could probably imagine tending to without too much worry.
