Question by Rxgarcia

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!
