From the San Diego County Water Authority:
Using water efficiently is a way of life and an important responsibility that comes along with the benefits of living in a beautiful Mediterranean climate like the one we enjoy in San Diego County.
The WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Program is a free educational program designed to give you the skills and knowledge to turn your water-thirsty lawn into a beautiful and sustainable landscape that saves water and will thrive in our region.
These FREE, three-hour online and in-person workshops will give you the skills and knowledge to create a yard that loves San Diego as much as you do! Each workshop, taught by a local landscape design professional, focuses on specific landscape topics with a “do-it-yourself” approach including landscape design and maintenance, soil identification and health, turf types and removal tips, plant selection, rainwater catchment, irrigation retrofits and project installation.
These workshops are funded in part by the County of San Diego Watershed Protection Program. If you live in unincorporated San Diego County, you may be eligible for additional incentives through the Waterscape Rebate Program.
