Water-wise

The EPA's WaterSense program has eight principles and is similar to Xeriscaping.

The eight principles are:
  • Group plants according to their water needs
  • Use native and low-water-use plants
  • Limit turf areas to those needed for practical uses
  • Use efficient irrigation systems
  • Schedule irrigation wisely
  • Make sure soil is healthy
  • Remember to mulch
  • Provide regular maintenance
