Well, first of all I would build up the soil a bit. Try looking up the water saving techniques on the site (just use the search engine in the forums).

Then, my personal choice for an evergreen ground cover; would probably what is not actually considered a ground cover but rather a shrub. Juniper. These plants are designed to cope with lower water levels.

Any other ideas?
