WATERWISE LANDSCAPE DESIGNS
Water is simultaneously part of our daily routine and the stuff of mystery. We use it to cook our food, wash our dishes, and brush our teeth; yet few of us can stand on the beach and not lose themselves watching the breakers roll in. In the face of climate change, water is becoming much more of an issue. We either have too much rainfall all at once or too little when we really need it, and it sometimes seems that this life-giving resource has turned against us.
