My main concern is water. I don't know what would be the best way to keep it on that land and I know that is really important since we have hot summers without no rain. For a week now i have been trying to find a way to figure out is there some kind of a slope anywhere, but everything looks so flat.

Sorry, my idea was that if you have some ponds plus some swales that are directing water to them, the ponds themselves would be constantly fed. No swales, no water moving toward the ponds.
