Overview

The high desert region comprising New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Texas offers a challenge to gardeners and landscapers. But pleasing and rewarding gardens and lawns can be achieved with a proper understanding of the soil, climate, and special needs of the southern Rockies. This is the first comprehensive guide to trees, lawns, and flower and vegetable gardens keyed to this unique desert environment.

As in her popular column in the Albuquerque Journal, horticulturist Lynn Doxon answers common questions and provides practical and specific advice for both beginning and experienced gardeners. Tips for beginning new yards and maintaining established ones, including information on watering, fertilization, pruning, insect control, and converting older lawns to xeriscapes, are presented in this thorough and detailed guide.
