The Votes Are In!

After receiving hundreds of Water-Smart Landscape Photo Contest entries, WaterSense's Facebook Fans Exit EPA Disclaimer voted for their favorite landscape. Congratulations to our four Water-Smart Landscape winners!

These finalists represent a selection of beautiful, efficient, and diverse landscapes from across North America that are benefitting from water–smart design features, such as incorporating:

  • Drought tolerant, low water–using, or native plants
  • Mulch around shrubs and garden plants
  • Limited or functional use of turfgrass
  • Water–efficient irrigation design and components (e.g., micro or drip irrigation, weather–based irrigation controllers, etc.)

Do You Have a Water-Smart Landscape?

Although WaterSense could only select a handful of finalists, many wonderful contest entries that demonstrate water–smart landscaping principles are showcased in the Water–Smart Landscape Photo Gallery.

The Water–Smart Landscape Photo Contest is closed for new entries, but if your own landscape is water–smart or you’ve designed one that is, contact the WaterSense Helpline to learn how it can be included in the Water–Smart Landscape Photo Gallery.
