I have 2 small areas 8ft x 8ft both sides of steps leading to the pool that I want to plant with easy to maintain small plants that will provide summer color. I'm in Atlanta and have watering restrictions. Any suggestions?

I'd go with plants tolerant of hot, dry locations. They will thrive under full sunshine with a minimal of watering:
Creeping Zinnia; Portulaca; Tithonia; Four-O'clock; Snow-on-the-Mountain; Verbena;
Kochia; Sunflower; and Vinca.
