Look to Your Lawn
Tip: Pick low-water plants.
"Conserve water in your yard by replacing some of the lawn with gardens of low-water plants. Contact local extension services offices for information on plants tested for the conditions of your area/yard (light, moisture, temperature) and that require little water.
Another lawn-replacement idea is to save money at the grocery store and plant your own food/vegetable garden. After harvesting for yourself, give excess produce to a local foodbank so others can enjoy fresh, healthy meals as well. Check out local 'Plant-a-Row' programs in your area."
