After the last several very dry summers here in Central Pennsylvania, I've made up my mind that our back yard is going to be xeriscaped--landscaped in such a way that it requires a minimum of watering and maintenance.

I have no idea what I'm doing.

Therefore, in the spirit of the hive mind, I opened this community in the hope that others interested in the same idea might come together and tell stories, relate experiences, and learn together how to best use the available resources to make our outdoor spaces beautiful.

I've been doing a lot of Googling in the hunt for xeriscape information specific to my area. Eartheasy has a nice list of plants, shrubs and trees that are supposed to require less water than the usual.

But, lazy woman that I am, I want a list specific to my own area--zone 6b. I've email my county ag extension office and I hope to hear from them tomorrow or the next day. If I find any websites that are more detailed, I'll post them here.
