If you stick with a majority of native or desert-adapted plants, you don't really need to amend the soil. If you want to plant something more exotic or tropical, you're going to need to do some amending. I actually follow AZ Plant Lady's blog - Ramblings from a Desert Garden - for suggestions on desert plants, pruning, and other desert gardening. She is in the Phoenix area, so a slightly different desert, but not enough to make a difference. My backyard is gorgeous this year with feathery cassia, pink fairy duster, rosemary, trailing lantana, and a valentine bush. The birds and bees are having a glorious time!
