Don't put anything in it. Make everything dirt. I would probably use some rock, maybe for a border. If you are going to use grass at all, use some lava rock, New Mexico river stones (a multicolor stone) or a plain white rock. This is going to give you a rock effect. Then add salvias, lantanas, rosemary and grasses or things like that. There are some small bush trees that will give you a variety of colors variety. And, of course, add some cacti. That would give some color and variety throughout the landscape and something to look at. When I say cacti, I am talking about spinous cacti which does not have any thorns.
