• With selected plants that attract honeybees, migrating
butterflies, songbirds and other wildlife
• Designing the area for scenic beauty

• Research selected plants for how much water they need
• Choose a range of plants that will require no added water
once established
• Design water harvesting techniques

To reduce maintenance costs
