|I have a backyard that is all dirt and would like to transform it to a drought resistant garden, but also have fruit trees and be dog friendly, so some type of lawn for him to lay in would be appreciated.
I also have a 2 tiered brick area in the back and not sure what to put there.
|Here are two outstanding websites devoted to California desert gardening and water conservation measures. The first is sponsored by Cochella Valley Water District: www.cvwd.org/archive/lush&eff/ The second is devoted to California native plants: www.laspitas.com Between the two sites you should come away with a better understanding of which plants grow best in the sites you have in your yard and the best way to take care of them. Best wishes with your project!|
