Showcase Your Yard Makeover in the WaterSmart Landscape Contest
Are you proud of your water-saving landscape? Share it with others by entering this year’s WaterSmart Landscape Contest. The deadline to enter is Friday, May 12, 2023.
Every year, the Otay Water District joins water agencies throughout San Diego County to launch the contest and award one resident from each agency with the title of “Best in District” and a $250 nursery gift card.
Additional prizes for Otay winners include a goodie bag, certificate of recognition, and a feature in the District’s newsletter, website, social media, and other promotional materials.
Entries are judged based on design, overall attractiveness, efficient irrigation methods, and appropriate plant selection and maintenance. Front, back, and side yards are welcome.
To qualify, applicants must submit before and after photos of their landscape, a plant list, and a description of their landscape’s transformation. Nominations are also welcome.
Last year, the District selected Bryan and Denee Felber from Chula Vista as the winners. They converted 2,143 square feet of turf. Their completed landscape has allowed them to reduce their overall water use by approximately 33%. See photos and read more here.
