When you live in the desert it’s hard to keep anything looking green, especially lawns. Ours looks pretty bad. We’d love to have a bit of lawn but have decided to take it out and xeriscape the whole area with rocks and desert friendly plants. I’ll leave a small space for seasonal flowers to add some color.
We haven’t started this project yet because we have to rent equipment to remove the dead lawn. We haven’t had time to do this job. Hopefully it won’t get to hot before we can tackle this, or it might be this fall before anything happens.
As it is we got two days off in a row so we could cut back bushes and take out dead plants. We filled up three trash cans with stuff, got sunburned in the process, and scratched all over by twigs and wayward branches. We were a sight at work the next few days.
The good news is once we can do this project we’ll save on the water bill.
