The other purpose of study is to determine the suitability of water-wise landscape of turfgrass plants which were used on traffic island, parks and public institution gardens of Çankırı. Also study was conducted for the purpose of provide various solutions about drought. As a result of study, from species of turfgrass plants; perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.), kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L). and white clover (Trifolium repens L.) species were determined as high water request plants, especially summer times they request frequently irrigation. Additionally, tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) and creeping red fescue (Festuca rubra var. rubra L.) were determined that can live with limited water. Also ornamental plant species with high water requirement were determined as common box (Buxus sempervirens), American arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis) and Babylon willow (Salix babylonica). Water request of other species which were used by Çankırı Municipality were determined as low or medium.
