I now have a dead lawn. I refused to keep it alive because water is quite expensive and we’re in a drought that is dangerous for the ecology of California. My front yard is now a 25’x40’ patch of dirt.
Maybe I should turn it into a succulent garden. But I wonder how maintenance intensive it will be? Will succulents survive harsh summer sunlight and heat? Can I DIY it and make it look nice? Is it expensive to do, say compared to grass? Does it save that much water?
I'm kinda excited about the idea. Has anyone made the transition?
