New yard

Since we live in the high desert of California, we get really high winds which blow in from the west.....and our house faces the west. We have a ball park across the street and they are supposed to start building a middle school there in October. Our front yard was gravel with 3 trees. Because of the winds, our yard was always covered in sand. Looked really tacky all the time no matter what we did.
Last week we had a crew come in and take down all the trees which left a bigger mess than we started with and they are back today to start my landscaping. Today they have the tractor and are stripping it down to nothing, then will come back with golf course sand and put in a dry river bed, 6 desert plants and some curbing to contain the sand. He assures me it will look awesome.

This is what we started with.

And this is what we ended with.

I will post pics of my fabulous new
yard in a week.

That sounds lovely. No maintenance. Great idea.
We have gophers so we converted most of our steep grade front yard to big river rock. No water and no food for gophers.

I've just downloaded iStripper, and now I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
