Hi everyone, I am just learning SFG and live in the desert which means cold, hot and always dry and windy. I will be asking lots of questions!

Hi Simon, Welcome to the Forum from hot (up to 110*F), dry summer, with mild winter Central Valley! glad you\'re here

Looks like you need sun shade, wind breaks ?? SFG is good for hot areas. The Mel's Mix formula is good for moisture retention, especially if it is mulched during the summer. You are Welcome to join in the Northern California running thread. https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t21830-northern-california-coastal-valleys-what-are-you-doing-this-month
