A low-impact development garden at the Water Reuse Demonstration Site in Sequim, Wash., seeks to educate people about sustainable landscaping practices. The garden features more than 2,200 drought-tolerant plants, as well as a rain garden and permeable asphalt. It is expected to have grass and weeds in its early stages, but ground cover plants and mulch will soon crowd them out, said Joe Holtrop, manager of the Clallam Conservation District.
