Both water and humans leave their marks on the desert landscape. The cascade expresses a metaphorical gesture that suggests water rolling down a human's back and spine, a miniature watershed. Xeriscape plantings in the rib-like, lobed terraces are selected for their marvelous colors, textures, and sculptural shapes and are intended to inspire desert homeowners.
