    Grass was brown for the majority of last summer, and we have had only about 60 percent of normal rainfall, so converting to native species and xeriscaping is even important here. I am convinced we are moving towards the historic climate of Kansas or northern Oklahoma and need to be prepared with more drought and heat-tolerant species of plants.

     I am most familiar with native and sustainable landscaping in the Midwest or East Coasts, but the general concepts and design are applicable to your region as well. I have to bone up on the native species of your region before I can come and do a talk appropriate to your region.  I'd be tickled to ride the Southwest Chief from Chicago down for a talk if it could be arranged, though!
