About Us


southwest vegetable garden
Low desert vegetable garden.

You can find lots of gardening information online and through social media. Most of it is really helpful, and sometimes not so much. Plus, it’s different out here in the Southwest. In particular, water is scarce, and gardeners have learned how to have colorful lawns, grow food for their families and provide shade for their homes and outdoor spaces despite usual drought conditions.

Our goal is to make it easier for those of us living out West to enjoy gardening and find information specific to our area and zones that’s easy to understand. We’re garden bloggers, consultants, master gardeners, and landscapers. Most of all, we’re gardeners in the arid Southwest. Learn more about our contributors and be sure to follow us on social media or by subscribing to our newsletter.
