On November 13 this is what we did at our Streetside Demo meeting at Carolyn's house:
We placed nearly a hundred flags in the ground for small sage (Celestial Blue), large sage (Allen Chickering), small grass (Purple Needlegrass), and large grass (Deer Grass).
Carolyn, left to her own devices, and incorporating the areas to the right and the left of the main planting area, did this:
I love how Carolyn has stretched her planting to the corners by creating individual "islands" for the plants. Perhaps she will end up connecting them as the plants mature, creating a continuous border. Come spring, as the weeds come up between the islands, she will have a lovely front area punctuated by, and celebrating, our California native plants. Fabulous job, Carolyn.
