How an amateur gardener created a small garden that thrives in Tucson, Arizona's desert climate.

My general advice is to leave as much natural vegetation as you can when creating a desert garden as most will provide an interesting and natural backdrop to your newer plants. The old agave in the photo had to be removed for safety reasons. As you will see later on the blending of the newer plants with the old helps maintain the natural desert landscape and will look less contrived.
