Site with Native Desert Plants that originate in the deserts
No Roses or Posies
We proudly offer to the hard working yard keeper,
who is faced with a dwindling water supply and higher water rates,
an alternative yard that is not wilting, and yet appealing to on

Native Desert Plants in your yard that require little attention and
