Buck Hemenway stands beside a Halfmen’s succulent, found in South Africa. Hemenway owns a wholesale succulent and cactus company in Riverside and travels abroad.

Digging a little deeper, we find this picture from last year of the Hemenway’s new garden.

Special to The Press-Enterprise
Buck and Yvonne Hemenway, of Riverside, will display their back yard filled with drought-tolerant plants at the ninth annual Garden Tour and Plant Sale this weekend.

Now that’s a lot of cactus. And they ripped out a lawn to install it.
