WaterWise Landscape Toolbox
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.
