I thought I remembered this comment from a while back. Funny, this past winter the voles went crazy in this area and killed most of the Karl Forrester grasses. They are everywhere!

I'd ask some very important questions to those involved, and have them turn me on to the necessary papers, articles and personal contacts regarding this situation before getting involved...

My first guess is,,, that very few people have a clue as to what is ACTUALLY taking place,and they throw Green Words around, to feel superior and they want ONLY superior people working for them...
This could be fun... let us know what's going on when you get more details...

Here are the common or general terms and some very general examples.

Oasis: Requiring frequent Irrigation. (Annual Flowers)

Drought Tolerant: Needing occasional irrigation (Shrubs)

Natural: Survive on Natural Rain Fall with out Irrigation. (Trees)
