Moonscape, Zeroscape, and Xeriscape

After the creative demise (I mean xeriscape treatment) of our backyard, we decided to do the front yard this summer.  It seems the responsible thing to do in the desert because the amount of fertilizer, water, and labor to keep it green is expensive, tiring, and chemically-laden.  So here we have our collection of pet rocks!

    This looks really nice. After my attempts with this year’s gardening (or lack thereof) this is inspiring.

    • Thanks. I figured if we had to go without a lawn, I still wanted some design and color. Don’t tell our neighbors, but there is actually a little seam of gold in one of our rocks that we got. It may be our retirement. 🙂

    Wow! A major challenge with really great results!

    Good for you and good for he environment! My favorite gardening practice at the moment is roundup and pine straw for the same reasons you have pea gravel!!

    I like the new look! Wish we could do the same here but we have done some in the back and mainly have drought resistant plants as we have watering restrictions. I am always picking up rocks when we travel.

    I am shocked that you don’t go out every morning and rake elaborate patterns into the gravel like a Japanese temple gardener.

    Your front yard really looks pretty now: great job!
    Best regards from southern Texas,

    Wow and will it stay snake free that way? If you can’t beat them join them I say my garden had better weeds this year so I will let it sit and rot for a year or two and grow all crops in containers 🙂 I HATE WEEDS 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
