A water-wise landscape is more than just a drought-tolerant landscape. It's a landscape that has been carefully designed, properly installed and managed to assure year-round beauty in addition to being drought-tolerant.
You don't have to totally re-design your landscape or spend a lot of money to make your landscape more water wise. Sometimes changing watering habits, adding mulch, or relocating a plant to a more desirable location can save a lot of water.
