      Thanks for writing, Nancy! Driver and pedestrian visibility is a major consideration for the project. Our plants have been selected because they never grow taller than 18 inches. All the best, Paul

    The choses of plants are great as they require little watering as you so put it drought. Thanks for sharing. Yes I have seen the improvement and it is coming along fine.

      Thank you, Mildred. Yes, drought-tolerance is key. Our new trees and plants will require water until they’re established, but over time, our water requirements will be low. All the best, Paul
