New to desert

Hi. It looks like this group is dead. But I’ll throw out a new topic and see what happens. I’m new to desert gardening. I moved to Phoenix 5 years ago and tried container gardening with dismal results. Apparently, everything needed water not just once a day but twice, which was too much to handle when I was working.

Now I’m in the Amargosa Valley area of Nevada. Not quite as hot as Phoenix but much drier — 3-4 inches of rain a year, and no monsoon season.

I’m looking for fellow gardeners with experience in such climates. A prior tenant or owner installed an extensive drip watering system. I’m seriously considering either a rain gutter water system or self-watering 5 gallon buckets.
