    That's 75 % of what we do here in the Valley.

    Just completed a drip/irrigation job...planter area with all mature tropicals, adjustable emitters 0-10 GPH and for potted plants on patio and planting bed in front yard. Streletzia nicolai, Syagrus, Agapanthus, Hibiscus and Flax.

    More often than not I use mondo grass in my beds. It looks great and is a big money maker. I need to figure out that would work with the drip systems.

    You and Bumper would get along fine. His famous slope photo has what appears to be clumping Blue Fescue. :)

    Personally I'd use something like this. However, Tony Parker might have something to say. :laugh:
