Some general questions
I'm just about to buy a house in Santa Fe, NM, where we have a scarce supply of water. I thought it was called "zeroscaping", but now I see it's called "xeriscaping". Can anyone point me in the direction of some good URLs/literature? I'd like to gather a few ideas for what my garden may look like.
I originally thought xeriscaping was defined as landscaping using only rock, but now I understand it means to use local plants / plants that don't require a lot of water. Is there a name for lanscape gardening using only rocks?
My garden will obviously not have a lawn, but I'd like to get some good ideas from books/sites on how to create a nice garden none the less.
I'm originally from Scotland - lawns and rainfall aren't too scarce there.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
