I think the topography here is pretty similar to south La. Most of the city is built on old marshland, and it's completely flat - the highest point in town is the old landfill! We flood pretty badly whenever a storm comes through, but luckily my lot is built up high enough that we never get saltwater in the gardens (knock on wood). I imagine that would be pretty bad for the plants.

I don't actually do SFG, though it is popular in urban gardens. Hopefully someone else will be able to talk about that with you.

Rabbits are allowed as pets here, but not as livestock. I'm not sure how they really enforce the difference. My husband had pet rabbits as a kid, so I don't think we'd ever raise them, though they are very practical for a small space.
