Is water use the only thing that makes landscaping green?

    If I understand your question correctly it looks like you are looking for ways to make landscaping more green. Choosing plants that require less water is one way to make it more sustainable. Xeriscaping is the term used for landscaping using drought-tolerant or low water plants (see link). Another way to landscape more ecologically is by planting species native to your area. That way you are not propagating plants that may spread further and compete with native ecosystems. Additionally, you can landscape using few or no chemical fertilizers or pesticides which can enter the groundwater or run-off into rivers and streams.

    No, using native plants also helps make landscaping green. Native plants survive better in their location because that is the climate they are meant to be in. Furthermore, using non-native plants also has risks because you might accidentally plant an invasive species.
