the best tip are to find plants that are appropriate for your zone, whether vegetables or flowers, so that you have to rely less on artificial watering, pesticides, and fertilizers.

THis is a good site that determines the hardiness of plants. "The 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones. " planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/

you can also look at permaculture techniques, which are a way to plan a garden with the seasons and the landscape in mind. permacultureprinciples.com/

If its vegetable gardening, Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholemew was an excellent source.
