Need Suggestions for Rocky Area
I may try this in the Landscape forum, but this is in Southern California, and some there just don't know what we face.
We purchased this neglected, rocky hillside property (1.4 acres) in late January. This section is at the end of the driveway and faces East.
Obviously we need to clean up the crumbling granite, paint the wrought iron, and find something beautiful to replace the weeds.
What are these weeds? I can "round them up," but what should I replace them with? Irrigation and voles and gophers are plentiful! This area seems like we probably couldn't put a gopher basket in because things are growing out of cracks in rocks!!
On the top of this area is a small concrete patio, and we removed a large Liquid Amber and are fighting suckers coming from it's roots on a daily basis, but we'll win. In it's place will go a fig tree in a large gopher basket for protection until it settles in.
Your suggestions will be welcome!!
