It’s approximately one acre in size with a great variety of drought tolerant plants, colourful succulents and architectural specimens set around a Mexican ranch style house. The local climate is mild and sunny with a hardiness rating of USDA 10a. In 2007 wild fire swept through the area including the Schaefer’s property but the water retaining succulents in their garden prevented their house from catching fire unlike many of their neighbours properties.
