Answer: Learning when your growing season begins is the first step in having a successful vegetable and flower garden. In general, cool season veggies can go into the garden in April, warm season veggies in June. Here's what I do: Early planting of
beets, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, chard, lettuce, mustard, onions, parsnips, peas, radishes, spinach and turnips can begin in mid-April. At that time you can also seed or sod lawns with Prescott blend bluegrass or Water Wise fescue. The average date for last killing frost (32 degrees) is May 19 in Prescott and May 11 in the Valley Areas. Plant beans, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, melons, peppers, pumpkins squash, and tomatoes in late May; in June, plant beets, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, chard, lettuce, mustard, onions, parsnips, peas, radishes, spinach and turnips. If you didn't plant your lawn in April, you still have time in June to seed or sod lawns with Prescott blend bluegrass or Water Wise fescue.
There are dozens of low water use trees and shrubs for you to consider. Perhaps the best recommendation is one that you'll find on the following handout from the Arizona Department of Water Resources: http://www.wattersonline.com/talk/LowWaterPlantList.pdf
