Being water-wise doesn’t mean sacrificing beauty. Many beautiful, flowering evergreen trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials are low-water users, but if thirsty ferns are part of your garden dreams, they can be integrated in the best location to prevent water waste.

Water for birds or other wildlife in beautiful recirculating fountains, ponds, or mini-streams can all fit responsibly in a landscape that integrates people and nature, private gardens and the regional environment and climate.

Garden design should respond to individual gardening routines and budget. Kay can help with irrigation and maintenance guidelines and calendars, and ongoing consultations, to help your landscape become more beautiful with time – adding to your home’s value and your own enjoyment.
