I don't think these two topics are compatible.
When I lived in Virginia I cut 1.5 acres of grass for 13 years. When I left there and moved to Utah I had a new home built. And for the past two years I have gotten away with dirt! I figure any summer I am not cutting grass is a great summer. I keep telling the neighbors that I am on a 3 to 5 year plan for my yard. So far so good.
But this summer was a wet one and it looked like we had abandoned the 'ol homestead'. So I made the sacrifice and bought a push mower to cut down the sagebrush and tumbleweeds. Then the wife asked if it wasn't time for landscaping? I figure sure.....rocks and sand. I mean we live in the desert, right? Now we have "landscape architecs" consulting with us. It is interesting that when they ask how much I want to spend that all the estimates figure up to that exact amount. So now I am telling them what I want and then ask them how much it will cost. I get a more accurate figure that way.
So anybody got any cactus or Gila Monsters they want relocated? I need to get rid of the dang prarie dogs! They are 'protected' here in Utah. It is $10,000 fine if caught. So I just get on the ATV and ride all over my property. Eventually they will move.
And what is your latest project now that winter is almost upon us?

Winter? Oh yea, that funny white stuff that falls from the sky! I remember that. Well last week I planted a garden, onions, lettuce, tomatoes and squash. So about the time you are shoveling out from under I'll be enjoying fresh vine ripened tomatoes and crisp garden fresh lettuce .... Sorry couldn't resist. BTW we lived in Maine for 30 years !

Winter is just cold weather up here in the high desert country. If we want warm we just "drive down off the mountain" to St. George where winter temps seldom get below 50 degrees.
Snow? Not much. I would never need a 4x4 to get around. If I do I would use my ATV! Gives me an excuse to ride the thing in the snow.

The problem with the "high" desert is it is often too cold to support regular cactus growth. But thanks for the offer.
Cold? Snow? We lived in Virgina for 13 years. Got to experience the "100 year storm" in 1993! Then in 02 I moved to Utah. Had to dig out the 5th wheel to leave. The snow blower was already in Utah.
Hope you are liking Arizona. I do like Utah. If you get up this way stop by. We are just off exit 62 on I-15 in Utah. Zion is a couple hours away and Bryce Canyon is about 1.5 hours out and Cedar Breaks is 20 minutes from home.
