The ridges are scary most times of the year for most visitors--because they are so gray, dusty and prickly I suppose.
I have watered parts of them now and again--during dry spells (when plants really looked as thouygh they might perish)...not very often. Had I tried to develop water intensive gardens in this half of my gardens as well, my water bill would have been astronomical. So there is economic logic in xeriscaping!
