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.

For more backstory on this space and progress shots check out this post.
