Cactus and succulent plants grow well in many climates. They require little water (not usually necessary to have irrigation) and don't require significant soil modification (you'll want to provide for water drainage).

Although in habitat cactus plants are usually not found among stones and rocks, for a nice landscaping appearance they can be nestles amoungst gravel, river rock or other types of rocks. If you are planning to cover with rocks, you'll be able to use weed cloth underneath, which will eliminate weeds from growing through.

Many succulents require fairly low light, such as the senseveria on the right, used as a living screen indoors. Senseveria like tight roots and thrive in limited size containers.

Here's a very nice installation of grusonii golden barrels on the left. We sell several sizes of them, diameters of 5, 9 and 11 inches. We can also provide larger ones, or mix and match sizes to create an effect such as this. On the right is a very nice marginatus column with an occotillo in the background (don't ask, we have never identified a good source for occotillo). Smaller succulents in the foreground provide a contrast.

Check them out first hand... here we are at Moortgen Gardens (left) and in Indian Canyons (right), both located in the Palm Springs area of California. Notice how the ferrocactus (right) appears to grow out of a crack in a rock... in 100+ degree heat, too.
