A calm garden for a mid-century house

Looking for a low maintenance, calm, peaceful yard to highlight a low mid century house, we decided to rip up all the front lawn and put in a rock garden. We then made some custom rakes for raking patterns into the gravel, painted some concrete pavers red, built a planter for some horsetail, built a privacy screen in front of the gate, and put up a fence with frosted fiberglass screens (all, of course, while keeping a mid-century look to the property). It's simple, striking, and very effective.
