Does the institution use xeriscape landscaping techniques, including the selection of drought tolerant plants?:

A brief description of the program or practice:

ICC uses Xeriscaping to help conserve water in our landscape beds and annual flower pots. Over the past few years we have made an effort to reduce the amount of annuals we install and to replace those beds and areas with drought tolerant, low maintenance perennials. In the areas that we do still plant with annuals, we use drought tolerant, low maintenance annuals that are also aesthetically pleasing. Mulch is applied to all beds to help prevent weeds and reduce the amount of water needed.
