Jim Borland of Denver planted his xeriscape using no watering system, no soil amendments, and no mulch. He started in 1996 with 1,500 seed packets of previously collected wild seed sowed to 1,500 pots. 
The first 10,000 plants in the initial planting were watered overhead for establishment. 



Subsequent plantings were planted in late winter with no water applied then, or since.


He has not applied any water in years!
