    A few decades back, I read in a college geography text, that the US temperate desert zones are experiencing desertification, an expansion of the desertification process. All of California was included in the text chart depicted. I wasn't expecting it to kick-in so fast. I was thinking in terms of a very gradual process of thousands of years. But if this is the case, an intensive or quick initial phase of the process is actually a good thing. This way people get Nature's message, transition to highly drought hardy landscaping, and they're done with it.

    Thanks for posting.  Growers of native plants add LOTS of water to get plants to grow quicker.  New plants require LOTS of water till established.  With no irrigation system, be prepared to water lots and lots by hand till established. I got several calls this year from homeowners whose gardeners led them to believe natives require practically no water, which is true once established, not when new.  Are you doing a dry creek bed?

    Great video! We're currently getting ready to landscape our huge front yard with no grass here in California. Although we are not doing drip irrigation (we're planting California native plants and they require to be sprayed with water every so often to keep them dust free and happy), we are planting plants that require very little to no water during the dry months.
