It's that time of the year again! The annual Water Savvy Landscape Contest is now open and accepting applications. 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 sponsored by Edison, a winning landscape yard sign, a chance to be featured in upcoming marketing materials, and other recognition. The contest is open to CVWD customers and will run through April 30, 2024.
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.
