"I don't know anybody who's not worried about water," Gardenista editor Michelle says. "There's either too much of it or too little. In California, where I live, we're experiencing the worst drought in a century. In New York, where my friends live, sea levels are rising so fast that LaGuardia Airport may become a modern version of the lost city of Atlantis by 2100." So here's how to cope: Above: Erin chats with landscape architect Christine Ten Eyck about designing gardens in arid landscapes; see Ask the Expert: 11 Tips for Designing a Water-Conscious Garden .    Above: Michelle checks in with Sally Dominguez, a Bay Area-based architect and graywater crusader (she invented the Rainwater Hog, shown above), who tells us 7 Ways to Save Water in the Garden .   Above: One of those details you don't think about until you suddenly need them: Hardscaping 101: Rain Gutters . Above: Erin dropped in on Caffe Spina in Greenpoint , more than just a flower shop (hint: coffee is involved). Above: And for our new Outbuilding of Week feature, Michelle visits An Old Barn as Energy-Efficient Guesthouse in California's Santa Ynez mountains.
