I didn’t think it was possible due to our rain and bizarro weather, but I was determined to give it a try and look at me now! I hope this video inspires you to find a space to xeriscape, even if it’s just a couple of feet wide to start like mine was. After this addition, it will be 9 feet wide 🙂 A quick list of the materials you’ll see in this video: Pumice, porous ceramic soil conditioner/Turface, expanded shale, river rocks; check out the Supplies page at for more information and where I get them.

    That looks fantastic! Nice job. You're giving me some great ideas for my yard. Been in our house for 16 years, re did the landscape 10 years ago and now it's time for a revamp. Definitely adding some more cacti to our cacti garden and lots of gorgeous succulents as well.

    I'm excited about this because it means I may be able to do this as well in my zone. What is the name of that amazing opuntia that's in the back to the right? I've never seen one with that pad shape.

    Your mammillaria look amazing! They're so tall and beautiful! Mine are still small. But they're pushing through this winter weather. I wish I could ground plant mine, but I'm moving soon. So I have to eventually pack all my plant babies and take them with me. I just hope they don't fall out their pots and spill dirt all over my car
