EMWD has saved water and reduced landscaping maintenance costs by retrofitting its landscaping, which included the creation of a demonstration garden. As part of EMWD’s efforts to maximize water supplies – including recycled water supplies – EMWD completed the third and final phase of its Landscaping Retrofit project with the completion of its demonstration garden in 2009. The garden replaces 7 acres of traditional landscaping that included 6 acres of turf grass.
Landscapes for Living is an exciting new Outdoor Water Use Efficiency Program from Eastern Municipal Water District! The program offers rebates and FREE installation of water saving equipment to help our residential customers reduce outdoor water use, save money, and gain beautiful front and backyards with low-maintenance, water-efficient landscaping.
Water-efficient landscapes come in a variety of styles. Whether you are looking to save water or minimize maintenance, reducing turf grass and adding more hardscape, such as patio areas, may be beneficial.
EMWD provides a number of resources to help you plan or maintain your water-efficient landscape!
