I've been posting on my xeric landscaping/gardening project over in the Rocky Mountain Forum. Its largely Mediterranean/High Desert type plants as I live in Albuquerque where it is dry with mild temperature extremes. Seems relevant here too, so I'm posting a link. Take a look and post any discussion you see fit to post.

I hadn't looked at your project before - looks really interesting. Please post some more photos about next May-June!
I've been here over 9 years. I started with a plan, but some willy-nilly has sneaked in, and some things didn't work out. Now that I'm older and wiser, I will be re-doing some areas for 2010.
Thanks for the Photos!

Will do. I figured some things wouldn't make it and will have to try other things when they don't.

It is a challenge especially if desert plants freely blow and seed in your yard. I recommend planting your beds and delineating the plantings with ripped up rolls of roof paper so the plants you see after the winter rains, are mostly plants or seeds you want, it is easy to confuse your bedding plants and seedlings with weeds or to think they are your seedlings and leave them just to have them run deep tap roots and over run your garden taking all the water with them. You can remove pieces as you see things are established and tear out bigger holes for more plants or so your plants can self sow in near by areas, without wanting to kill yourself and waste a year of good gardening.
