[Total: 0 Average: 0/5] In March of 2017 I finished installing this water harvesting landscape throughout my cousin’s backyard, in Chandler, Arizona. You can watch that whole process in my desert backyard permaculture design video series, here on my chanel. I planted a few fruit trees, as well as a vegetable garden for my young nephews to experiment with. This is how the landscape looks a little over 1 year later. Some things are doing well while others are not. There have been some mishaps with the irrigation timer, resulting in some plants not receiving water, which quickly leads to death for most things in the desert! This is a good example of the importance of observing and interacting with your landscape on a regular basis, as it allows you to spot problems sooner rather than later. Overall, given the tough growing conditions in the Arizona desert, I feel like everything that was getting water is doing relatively well. The first summer is always the hardest for new transplants, and now that they have made it through that alive, they are set up well for their second summer. I’ll check back in next time I visit Chandler to see how the yard is doing then. Video Rating: / 5
