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

A brief description of the program or practice:

When possible, Grounds selects perennials that require less water and cut down on mowing.

Around Sophia Gordon Hall, no irrigation system has been installed for watering of the plants and grasses. The plants the designers have chosen are more drought-tolerant to accommodate the lack of irrigation on site.
