1. MULCH! More mulch = less water required, less fertilizer, and less weeds to pull! This also equals more time enjoying your garden, more healthy harvest to taste, and more money back in your pocket. Literally 12” around trees, & 4” around your annuals and veg.  

2. CLIMATE CHANGE! No matter what you believe globally, climate change is REAL in your garden… and FULL SUN is NOT your best friend when it comes to growing space in the summer in Arizona. To get the most out of your garden there are SIX different microclimates A through F in every yard that you can use to your advantage!

Dead shade = Pergolas, Sails (with good R-values… khaki or yellow better than black), walls, screens
