I'd be interested in hearing from other folks interested in xeriscaping in and around Vancouver. I've a small front yard xeriscape with cacti, yuccas, grasses and other succulents here on the WET coast. I'd be happy to hear from others who may share successes and not so successes with plants / soil recipes and other ideas. My biggest challenge to my xeriscape is the amount of weeds. Although it's low maintenance in terms of watering and fertilizing ... the weed can drive a person stir crazy. And folks who live in a similar climate to ours (cool temperate)... it'd be nice to hear of how well your xeriscapes are faring. Thanks!
