I have a large rectangular back yard and it is full of weeds and dirt. I want to landscape but need a plan that includes a maintenance free yard. no sprinkler system,whatever is planted would have to be hand watered. I would like rock, mulch with some hearty plants/bushes(I have a black thumb) and a small area for lawn, no trees. Can you design something for my yard?

I can't design your landscape for you but I can point you in the right direction. Colorado State University has several publications that may help:
Once you're on their site you can type in the words "design" or "low maintenance" and you'll get a listing of their publications. Hope you find them helpful.
Enjoy your new landscape!
