Water-efficient landscapes come in a variety of styles. If you’re looking to save water and have less maintenance, reduce turf grass and add more hardscape, such as patio areas. If you require functional play area, consider a more drought tolerant variety of grass such as St. Augustine or Hybrid Bermuda, or a groundcover such as Phyla Nodiflora (also known as Lippia), or artificial turf.

Here are some resources to help you plan or maintain your water-efficient landscape!

Water Efficient Devices

There are many techniques and devices that will help prevent runoff by using water more efficiently. Wood and rock mulches keep moisture in the soil and reduce evaporation. Bubblers, drip systems and rotator sprinkler nozzles apply water in a more targeted manner, reducing overspray and runoff.
