Landscape Contest

Yucaipa Valley Water District is launching its first Water Wise Landscape Contest to reward customers with water efficient landscapes. In addition, the District will use submitted residential landscape images to inspire others to make Water Wise choices. There are three contest categories that residents can enter:

  • Drought-Tolerant: This category is open to all District water customers with drought tolerant landscaping. Winners will be selected based on their use of beautiful water-efficient plants in their front yards. The appropriate use of mulch and drip irrigation to reduce water use will also be considered.
  • Dual-Plumbed: This category is open to all District customers living in a dual-plumbed home. These are homes that have recycled water irrigation to the front and backyards. To be eligible, contestants need to have attended the mandatory Recycled Water Site Supervisor Training. Because these yards use recycled water for irrigation, winning yards do not necessarily need to be drought-tolerant. Winners will be selected based on their compliance with recycled water guidelines and the overall aesthetics of their front or backyards. People with vegetable gardens are encouraged to submit. 
  • Recycled Water Fill Station Hauler: This category is open to all District water customers who have attended the Fill Station training and have hauled recycled water within the last 12 months. Because these yards use recycled water for irrigation, winning yards do not necessarily need to be drought-tolerant. Winners will be selected based on aesthetics or productivity of their yards or gardens.
