he garden accounts for about one third of our water consumption, so it is an obvious place to cut down on water use, while still enjoying all the benefits of gardening and growing beautiful, easy-care plants. 

Generations of gardeners have drawn inspiration from the cool, moist gardens of England, which are ironically quite contrasting conditions to many parts of Australia. Perhaps more appropriate places to look to would be the dry landscapes and deserts of the world. For many of us, particularly those of us with busy lifestyles, low water use gardens can be very appealing. It is a garden that is beautiful as well as practical. It is just a matter of knowing how to go about it.
