Rancho Cucamonga, CA – The Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) is now accepting applications for its annual Water Savvy Landscape Contest. The goal of the program is to promote outdoor water conservation through water wise landscaping by recognizing customers whose landscapes are both beautiful and water efficient. Up to four winners will receive a $250 gift card to a local nursery, a winning landscape yard sign, and other recognition. The contest is open to all CVWD customers and will run through April 30, 2022.
Landscapes will be judged based on set criteria: landscape attractiveness, design, plant selection, and method of irrigation. Overall natural resource conservation will be evaluated. Examples include water efficient plants, permeable hardscapes and organic materials.
“It’s always important to conserve water, especially outdoors where 60% of water use occurs,” stated CVWD Board President Randall James Reed. “The Landscape Contest is a great way for CVWD to highlight customers in our community who are using water wisely in their landscapes, while also inspiring others to be more efficient. If you or your neighbors have a water-wise landscape, we encourage you to apply!”
CVWD is committed to assisting customers in improving outdoor water efficiency and educates residents through programs like the Water Savvy Garden Tour, landscape retrofit programs, and water efficient workshops.
