This is the problem I have. Live in CA and collect cycads and few palms. Wife like Native plants of C A. Any idea on how they can be planted in the same yards? Still look good.

Delzell,

It seems to me that you have the perfect situation for a garden that will please both you and your wife. I would use the cycads and palms as foundation or cornerstone plantings to frame your planting areas, and minimize use of lawn grass. Since California has such a wide array of wonderful and colorful native plants, the only limit to what you can plant is your imagination. Additionally, most of the species are drought tolerant.
Good luck!
