Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Jun 15, 2017Plant whatever strikes your fancy! There is no right or wrong way to do this. If it looks pretty to you, it works. Be sure to mulch to make them stand out and keep them happy.Helpful Reply
Ellis on Jun 17, 2017I have a very narrow strip of soil, about 10-12 inches or so, alongside my house, and it sits in the blazing hot sun most of the day, facing southwest. I tried growing several different plants, but none worked for long. The soil there is also very sandy. Then I found succulents.I started off with a multi--pack of hens and chicks. They did quite well, so I then planted one or two other sedums with tiny leaves. But this is a very long space, so I could go broke buying individual plants at about $6.00/pot. So I bought a mat of succulent "tile" ($14 at Lowes), it was about 12"x24". I cut this mat (it has a fiber backing) of succulent plants into several strips, and interplanted them with the plants already there. They filled in beautifully, and now are doing quite well. They only need to be watered about once or twice a week, using a watering can. One or two of the plants are more aggressive, so I occasionally cut some of them out so they don't overwhelm the other, more delicate sedum.Helpful Reply
