Featured Project

Heritage Gardens Program

The Heritage Gardens Program provides a unique way to educate homeowners, municipalities and businesses about the water savings that can be achieved by converting from high water-use landscapes to lower water-use landscapes. Implementation of the elements outlined in the program provide an average water savings of 20 gallons per square foot per year to growing a lawn and create beautiful garden landscapes.
