Your plan sounds like a good one! There are literally hundreds of plants suitable for your gardening region which are drought tolerant and easy care plants. The University of Florida has a publication that not only lists the plants but provides height, width, and growing requirements of each. Choose plants from this publication and you are sure to have a beautiful front yard - the envy of all your neighbors! You can download the publication:
