Backyard gets a haircut

We had the Toucan Landscaping people over here today to prune the trees and shrubs and to put some more gravel down. We were getting bald spots, and most of the shrubby plants were getting out of control.

Now it looks much neater, and a couple of our dead plants have been replaced with Desert Spoons. They also put some new drip irrigation emitters around the sumac, because it needs more water and it's getting pretty big now.
