Arun Das started gardening at zero or less-- he had no experience with design; his home was in Denver, which gets a mere 15 inches of rain a year; and his front yard was all lawn. "I bought plants from the catalogs," he says, "until I realized they were the plants people grow well back East." Yep, Massachusetts is not Colorado. And then? He took classes at Denver Botanic Garden and the city's water department. Both institutions emphasize plants that will thrive in local conditions. Arun says, "I was amazed at how many plants you can grow without water."
