If you put your lawn on a regular maintenance schedule, the grass should grow thick and lush. Water deeply once or twice each week, feed in March and June and again in October and mow as often as necessary to keep it neat and tidy.

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:
