grass and native drought tolerant plants

8,771 (170)

My husband has always likes the grasses so next year we will start a big garden in the front yard to house some. My goal is to make this a drought tolerant bed for the most part. That is a globe willow on the one end. The dog house is covering well equipment. We are thinking a hollow rock over the equipment. Well we got the false rock for the well head and the wildflowers planted last year are looking good. I have 5 pampass grasses planted 3 white and two pink. I have started laying out paths and I have a BIG sandstone rock picked out of the back edge of the bed. We are starting to gather rock for the paths and the edges. Haven't really done anything to the east end where the tree is because of the shade. It is just not speaking to me yet....
