I’m just back from Harlequin’s Gardens, where–because it’s just outside of city limits, there’s no municipal water (and therefore no development). With no water, Harlequin’s Gardens, Boulder best resource for xeriscape (native/drought-tolerant landcaping) knowledge, is forced to abide by it’s maxim: plant only what is appropriate to your clime. I’ll post more on this once I’ve downed enough water and rehydrated my brain…right now I can’t think, let alone type.
