this is very useful, thanks Cher.......I found that drip irrigation works very well over here in a hot climate, conserves a lot of water, also easy to utilize for the plant .....

thanks for this post my friend

No lawn, and cover all your ground with perennials, and cover the ground with mulch. This keeps your soil moist.

If they're native to your environment, consider those 'creeper' grass types like zoysia that need little or no watering, and use strained wash water from bath and shower to irrigate when needed along with roof and driveway runoff.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. A little bit of knowledge and work can do miracles for a yard.
