     Plant evergreen trees on the west and deciduous trees on the east side of the house to maximize shade and energy savings through the year.


Native plants provide food and shelter for wildlife.
 
Locate plants where they have room to grow to mature height and width without pruning.


Use mounds and depressions in the landscape to direct rain from the roof to root zones. Direct water at least 8 to 10 feet away from structures.
