    The Landscape Design Site - we have a lot to learn in our area regarding water issues and know that you can probably share much more than we know. We used to take water for granted. Then we had a record drought the other year and the entire Atlanta

    Southern Trillium - The cost of water has also become a question and consideration for us for all new designs as well. While it hasn't reached our area of the state yet, I've heard rumor that in the Northern part of the state, all lawn sprinkler designs

    I did some quick research, and found out that, for most situations, Atlanta does have the highest monthly water bills in the country. In the few situations where it isn't first, it is second. http://www.politifact.com/georgia/statements...

    Andrena, if you go the the Florida Friendly Landscaping website sponsored by the University of Florida Extension Service, you will find a whole database of native and Florida-friendly plants that are thrifty with water and well-adapted to our climate.
