An idea for the hiking trails
« on: July 13, 2012, 08:46:19 AM »
Anyone experienced in xeroscapes, how might I utilize mulching fabric, surrounding soils, a hills incline in order to introduce some drought-tolerant plants to a desert landscape?  I'm thinking butterfly/bee/bird friendly plants that will do well in partial to full sun. 

How cool to stumble across a field of flowers while out hiking in the dry Nevada brush?!  This is what I want to try to make happen.  Im thinking nylon permeable landscape fabric, stakes to hold in place, a shovel to toss any available sand and rock on top of fabric, and of coarse, the plants.
We were meant to tend this garden.

There's loads of flowers that would thrive in a place like that! Go for it, I say! But, what would you need the fabric for? Why can't you just plant without it???
