    I have this small area next to the house (cement slab) which I am wanting to landscape with something that will add some appeal. I live in lubbock, tx so zone 7 and it stays pretty dry here, so things that can tolerate heat and some drought. I want to fill the whole area pretty much, but leave room for the faucet. It is ~12ft at back and ~6ft at front Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    If this is a south exposure in Lubbock--if it ever gets over a hundred where you live...LOL! You need something suitable to the climate. Astroturf comes to mind. I see Bermuda in the foreground. Ask your Texas experts.

    Unless I missed something you can do any almost any southern plant. It all depends on how much work you would like to do. You have water run a drip on a timer remove all that dead soil and replace with some good stuff. Place a Y on the hose and place another spicket at the edge or side.
    Good luck you could do this in one day with out a problem.
