YAY! Our attempt at xeriscape worked!

I wanted to share this photo of our attempt to xeriscape (and in an area we were told was too difficult in which to grow anything, too).

BEAUTIFUL! Would you mind sharing what you planted. Looks like Sage? I agree with Lorna, so lush. I think too many people only see yucca & cacti when they think xeriscape.

Don't you mean "xericscaped" you had me going there!! I would add a wonderful product from a caring gardener, also looks like you have mulched around the plants to save moisture. Even I would award you a medal on results.

Wow! Looks great! I'd love to know what plants you used, too. Especially the groundcover - and if it's in full sun.

We have an awful looking skinny area on the side of the house and I've not seen a pretty groundcover that will do well without much water and in full sun.

Glad you posted the pics and that your attempt worked :)
