Landscaping Southwest is a program that investigates water-wise landscaping and gardening. This video looks at the La Mesa Community Garden in the first half and Ralph Peters' xeric yard and his cactus & succulent collection in the second half. It shows cacti, succulents, and other native plants (ocotillos, penstemons,...) used in landscaping and discusses their cultivation.
