I’m working on my yard. Simple, like a million other people, right?
The difference is that I live in Phoenix, Arizona – located in a very unique desert climate, the Sonoran desert, to be exact. The other diff is that I refuse to have one of those yards smothered in high water use, monoculturistic, high maintenance lawns.
Really? In the desert? Yeah, there’s tons of them here, although a lot less than there used to be. People are finally starting to invest in the future by lowering their water consumption.
And my thought – there’s very few places in the world that you can enjoy some of these incredible plants in your own yard, so why not?
Anyway, I research everything before it goes on the ground. As long as I’m putting the footwork in, I might as well share it and perhaps help someone else along.
