I'm pitiful when it comes to gardening - but I love to admire the work of others! Beautiful yard and flowers, sam! And so green...which may be a no-brainer to you, but here in CA, you have to work hard to have that kind of green, especially in the summer. Spring is beautiful but it doesn't last long and once the rains stop, most of the hillsides turn brown. We keep our grass going, but generally opt for drought-resistance plants.

Not sabr, but our soil is bad too (clay), and many people have grasses or there are some very pretty day lilies out there these days that are way more interesting than the just orange ones my mom used to have in our alley in Chcago! They seem to hold up with lack of rain, clay soil, hot sun and even walked dogs...we also have monkey grass or vinca or English ivy but they take over so be careful with that!

I was going to mention vinca, too, or lambs ear, if you just want a ground cover-a catmint can also be a ground cover .
