Desert Landscaping

When we got our home 2 years ago, it was a spec home, so we didn’t have a choice – we were stuck with a desert landscaping. At first, I didn’t like the idea of having a grassless front yard. We passed by a beautiful community called Agritopia once – it reminded us of the picturesque Craftman style homes in Pasadena California. Every front yard had lucious green grass and traditional white picket fences. I sighed as I went back home to my yard. Back then, a greenless yard felt dry, dead and unnatural. But as I read more about xeriscaping and living in Arizona, I appreciated what I had because I was conserving water. It’s not as if I’ll go out to my front yard and sit on my lawn. The only time I’d go out there would be to mow it. If I would choose grass, it would be better in the back yard for our daughter to run around in. However, I would deeply consider researching and maybe purchasing astroturf – fake grass. The only question I would have is instead of mowing would I just vacuum? :D
