After paying two $700 + quarterly water bills this year (mostly sewer costs but based on water consumption) I want to commit to a garden that is more drought tolerant and overall uses less water. I know this will take a couple of years to convert but I would like to see ideas on plants, trees, irrigation, and the process of changing the garden. I have both sun and heavy shade so I know it will be a challenge. But I can't afford the alternative! (plus have to believe the change is really better environmentally). - K. -
Needed: Design and transition to Drought tolerance

A side note on your quest: think about putting in a second water meter strictly for outside water. This meter would not have sewer costs added. Some governmental units allow homeowners this option. It will, in a few years time, pay for itself with cheaper water/sewer bills.

hi...there are a few options that you may want to explore...as a landscape designer I can help you with a re-design of your existing plantings, design a sustainable system, or just consult with you at your home. Please let me know if you would like to schedule a meeting with me...Jeff
