    If you are smart about it, your plants won’t require much watering. Choose plants that are appropriate for your climate, and plant those that need more water in low-lying areas so they get more run-off.

    When landscaping your private property, choose native plants. Native plants might be more expensive to purchase, but you will quickly regain the money and save much more in maintenance expenses. The sustainable sites iniative, did an experiment on native vs. traditional landscapes and the aesthetic and financial benefits of natives outweigh traditional plantings.
