So I put in a dry scape in one bed and a gravel garden in the other. This week it's paying off. I'm not watering daily, but weekly. In fact, the agaves are feeling perky and enjoying the sun tan. I'll have to start watering the rest of the garden just like before, but it's nice to pass by these beds and just smile.
Our PEACE Garden....easy on the eyes and easy on the water bill.
