Need to cut down on the water bill.
We have a home in Osceola County, Florida. Many of us have been totally horrified at the almost 45% increase in our water bills from KUA. We have a large expanse of grass, also citrus trees and are seriously thinking of turning most of it over to pebbles of various colours. However we do like plants, so what plants could we plant to give a little colour but that would need very little water and also that would withstand the recent colder winters that we seem to be getting in Florida. We will be there in the autumn and plan to start altering the garden then. Any advice would be gratefully received. Someone said that grey leaved lavender is hardy and does not need water, is that the case?
