yeah, my ultimate goal is to have no grass and lots of edibles.. and mulch were I'm not growing at the moment. South Texas has pretty dry low humus soil that's a bit alkaline.. lots of caliche (layer of clay like stuff a 1 or 2 feet down) The humidity here makes the usual 90 degree weather feel 20 degrees hotter. The sun is very bright here so year round growing is possible if you cover your plants from cold front winds. Everything that grows around here naturally is covered in thorns and spines and very straggly. (mostly mesquite trees, johnson grass, and cactus) I want to counter act the dryness of the soil by doing drip irrigation. o_o

So your plan is to have no more grass, right? And what is the sun like right there?
