What Houzz contributors are saying:

8. Lean towards local plants. Sandy uses lots of succulents and drought-tolerant plants in her designs, but she recommends getting acquainted with the native species in your own area. Not only will they require little effort to introduce into your landscape, they'll thrive far more easily than their non-native counterparts.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Southwestern Garden Style
Finish With ColorThe American Southwest is not the place for light pastels and gentle washes. The bold landscape calls for equally bold colors for both accessories and walls. This is the place for bright turquoises and chili-pepper reds, whether on pots or on doors.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Amazingly Low-Maintenance Picks for Outdoor Planters
Remember, many succulents thrive on neglect. Always err on the side of underwatering, not overwatering. If they look a little limp, then it's time to water. Note: Some succulents are frost tender and may need a cover in cold weather.
