Re: We moved again!

I am just south of Sacramento.  I was in Missouri for 15 months and moved back here in late February.  My husband is still stuck in Missouri, but hopes to get out soon too.  The lawn is only about 20x20 feet.  I have over the years converted all of the rest around the edges into garden.  So having rock in the middle will be a nice contrast to all of the other lushness.  I already converted one area of the garden to xeric plants (I call it my desert garden).  In another area I just cut off all the fern and will be removing it.  The entire garden is now converted to drip irrigation, except for the veggie beds that are microsprayers, and the small back lawn which I am keeping (for now).  I will go take a picture!  I have almost finished killing of the front lawn and week after next have hired someone to come remove it.  I am also having them remove a pyracantha hedge along the fence that I am tired of being stabbed to death while pruning.   Busy, busy, busy

Where in California? That is a great idea to remove your lawn! Will you have some xeric plants? How big of an area? Take before and after pictures! I wish I had a gardening project!  Have fun and keep me posted how it is going. Maybe I can garden through what others are doing!

> Congrats on the move. Sounds very exciting. I'm enjoying being back in California and hoping my other half wil be able to transfer back here soon as well. Current project is removing the front lawn. The state is now paying per square foot to do this, so that helps out a lot. Going to put in a path, some boulders, and decorative rock in a flowing pattern. Hoping my skill with rocks is as good as with plants!

We loved it there and it was closer to our daughter and 2 granddaughters but have always wanted to try Colorado.!
