Turf be gone ! :wub2:
- always been more into plants that benefit wildlife pollinators over just greenery, so here’s my start. Water will be fully installed at some point... before July .

cheers

Looking real good! Professional. I love ornamentals as much as the next guy, but for every palm I’ve planted this year I planted either a milkweed or a mountain mint for the pollinators. Got to at least try to support the bees and butterflies if we can.

I'm not a big fan of grass.  I keep some in the front for the Halloween graveyard, and some in the back for the dogs.

Are you putting stone or river rock down as mulch?  Or do you leave it bare?

I agree. Most grass makes me itch like Crazy unless wearing long sleeved clothing if I use it anyway - which isn’t ideal in my climate. I am putting down stone. I haven’t placed all my dirt yet, so it is bare for now. It will have washes that double as walkways

Thank you for the compliment! Completely agree. I’ve put a lot of things for hummingbirds as well. We have some that overwinter in our area, so winter bloomers are important. We have a few wildflowers that will stay bloomed year round of watered monthly.

A thing about rocks in the SW. In NM There is a town called Algodones(Spanish for cotton) . It sits in the world's largest contigious cottonwood Forest.  Many believe this is where the name comes from.

 

Until you discover Coronado(conquistador) wintered here in the 1500's and the local natives were growing cotton in a climate of about 160 day growing season in a zone 6b. They accomplished this using rocks!

Choose your rocks wisely!

I’ve heard grape vineyards will line the rows of vines with rocks to help regulate the soil temperature. Enough rocks in the landscape may hold enough heat to keep sensitive plants from freezing. Kinda what you’re referring to? Always interested in anything to extend growing seasons...

Beautiful landscaping! Grass is highly overrated and wasteful. We have a few patches in front to keep Cape Coral Code Enforcement away from the door.

Here in Corrales, NM, they buried the vines under 5' of dirt in earlier times. 

Same locale has some filifera that survived back to back nights of -11f. No rocks involved tho.
