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).

Lovely-very lush looking!

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 :)
