    I have a client that wants plants planted at the entrance to their parking lot, its only 20ft long, no sprinklers and they are def not going to water them, what is a good bush to plant this time of year in GA that can withstand the heat and other weather conditions.

    I use a system of flooding over the course of several days that can set the plant up for a couple of weeks w/out further moisture, depending on the soil and temp... Charge enough to talk with local nurseries about what will best survive as low maintenance... charge enough to come back and flood the plants on at least 2 extras times after planting...

    This will not end well. Prepare yourself to be blamed for their pretty little plants being dead in a month.

    Low maintenance requiring little to no water? Ask them how the feel about a few Cacti.
