Is your front yard the one where all your neighbors stop and offer compliments on beautiful drought-tolerant landscaping? If so, then the Inland Empire Landscape Contest may be for you.

This biennial contest is for front-yard landscapes that highlight water-wise landscaping, water use efficiency and good maintenance practices.

The contest is open to customers of water agencies throughout the Inland Empire, including EMWD.
