have to transform a 3/4 acre yard

Finally a weekend that I could get out and do some work in the yard.  It is slow work -- too many years of neglect while I was finishing my doc.  I must keep looking at the things I am getting done.

It's too shady to grow veggies here.  I am impressed that you grow veggies in the desert -- they require much nutrients and water!!

After several seasons of very disappointing results with our garden, we finally had some success with the one we put in last Fall.  We invested in a small planter box, good quality soil from a local nurcery, and a lot of hard work.  I live in the desert where growing much of anything is very difficult, but the good soil and an automatic watering system went a long way.  We primarily grow a garden for food and herbs since I do so much cooking.  When I get into my own house, I plan to have much of the yards dedicated to lawn space like my Dad did when I was growing up.

Hello.  I'm new to AoM.  I have a shady, sandy (mixed with clay) 1/2 acre lot in the coastal plain of Maryland.  Due to doctoral work for the last several years, things are in bad shape around here.  I plan to have a "woodland" garden in the back portion of the lot then a grassy area for outdoor activities.  I want to use native plants as much as possible in the back yard.  The front will most likely be standard suburban yard.  We're not really flower people, but like birds so berry-yielding is more important.

looking forward to hearing your gardening ideas.

David

Hm, I saw methods with two plastic water bottles, it looked really simple

It sounds like the only reason for having the solar panel is to pump water into a reservoir. I have heard of this being done with captured rain water connected to a low pressure drip system. In this country with running water available in most places that just sounds unnecessary. If I had some land somewhere and a access to a well I would certainly look into it.

Anybody have any experience with solar drip irrigation? Does it work? I don't live in a dry area but the efficiency is appealing.

I have started my herb garden out with Bay Leaf, Lemon Thyme, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Catnip, Lavender, Origanum, Mint, Tea Tree, Jasmine, Geranium, and Kanna. I'm hoping to get a Feverfew if the other plants work out. So far, so good!
