  1. I also have a love for “digging” per se. I want to drought friendly my yard. I have many ideas on how to get started however it would be beneficial if I got an expert opinion and at least some ideas. I live in Garden Grove and I don’t travel far plus I am on a limited income. Can you give me some ideas. I don’t want to hire a contract; want to do it on my own. Thanks
