I'm in the process of meeting with contractors to remove the existing grass in my backyard and replace with stone pavers with thyme in between. Also drought tolerant perennials and dwarf boxwood. I do not like cactus and succulents but still want drought tolerant. Replacing with this type of landscaping needs a contractor who really knows what they're doing. I'm finding that you really need to find someone who specializes in xeriscape or drought tolerant design. They're hard to find even in Southern Ca where we have a water issue.

eclecticedwardian,

Thanks for the links.

And it's not really mulch that I was looking to get from the tree guys. But the stuff the shredder spits out when they put branches through it. It has the leaves and branches all chomped into one HUGE truck. That's what I was looking for. I even get guys saying "Oh YEAH, I'd LOVE to bring this stuff over to you. You'd be helping me out." And then never hear from them again?!?!

AnnieSue: yes, that's what we have too. You want it wet to be able to work it AT ALL. And once it is wet it just sticks to every thing like a poo on babies bottom. You gotta getta a power washer to get it off. :-)

Simply Solar: we Do have a large area we call the "veggie yard" that's about 2000 sq ft and we are expanding it to more like 3500 this year. But no matter how much we produce in the summer, we just can't produce all our food in our harsh winters in the Boise, Idaho area. We have a "Pig area" that we raise 7 pigs a year on. (3 in summer for kids 4h projects, and 4 in winter, 2 for us, 1 we exchange with friends for 1/2 steer and one we sell to pay for the raising of the other 3).

We raise the pigs mainly on raw cows milk from our own dairy cow that we milk twice a day. We have a 3500 sq ft small ordchard of fruit trees, 5 of which died on us last year... Right as it was going to be their time to start producing :-(

The area that we are talking about is essentially about 2000 sq ft. Off the direct back of the house that we want to make... NOT a mud pit :-).

We're on an acre and we pack in a LOT! I didn't take offense at all to what you said. ( personally I agree with you.)

Just thought I'd give ya kinda of our layout. :-)

How to Choose the Right Solar Lights

Learn about different types of outdoor solar lights, where to use them and why you might want to avoid the bargain bin Full Story

Good point! Our first set of solar yard lights purchased about 8 years ago used CdS (photo) cells. The first thing to go bad was the thin coating applied over the solar cell and CdS cell. The CdS cell then corroded. I replaced these cells, installed new solar cells, and replaced the batteries (2 AA NiCads) to keep them going to this day. They have stainless steel housings and glass reflectors, but the rest is/was junk. The newer ones out today are so much better.

@szrick, thanks a lot for your comments. It's great knowing the background of why my new solar lamps from the same company no longer have the little photocells on top. I appreciate you opening up a little mystery. I love the way technology is always evolving the things we use every day.

All of these outdoor spaces look amazing! A beautiful way to connect any indoor environment to the outdoors is with an operable glass wall that creates a seamless transition between both spaces. Take a look at our folding and single-track sliding glass wall systems by visiting our houzz page and our website: http://www.nanawall.com/!

Feel free to contact us via phone 1 (800) 873-5673 with any questions and we'll be glad to assist.
