Water, Water Everywhere.

The cottage finally has a sprinkler system, which will save on energy and some time on my part. This upgrade will ensure everything is watered properly and I should not lose many more bushes to lack of water! The lawn is actually a drought tolerant mix of yarrow, roman chamomile, clover, rye grass and fine fescue, so it requires quite a bit less water than a conventional lawn. I mail ordered the mix from Nichols Garden Nursery . The dryland ecology mix is for this zone and they offer many other options for other parts of the country. I love the feathery, soft look and do not mind the occasional, dare I say it, dandelion.

Here is another guest comment I received by email from the same people that I posted about yesterday.
