The rocks are here! The rocks are here! And boy, are they dirty. Ten cubic yards on half inch Sonoran Tan and four cubic yards of three to eight inch River rock, all to go around the pool. A lawn is impractical in this area due to the heat and cost of water. That isn't to say our yard is barren. It is filled with Cholla, Prickly Pear, Saguaro, Ironwood, Mesquite and Palo Verde trees, Hackberry and Limber bushes, all natural. In addition, we've planted other native trees and hardy flowering bushes. We live in a very lush desert area.
