If your response to a changing climate and drought was to install a water-efficient landscape and drip irrigation then you may be poised to win a $250 Home Depot gift certificate this April.

That’s the prize for winning Helix Water District’s 2016 California Friendly Landscape Contest, along with a feature story on Helix’s website and in our newsletter.

Landscapes entered in the contest are judged on their overall attractiveness, plant selection, design, maintenance and the efficiency of the irrigation system. Entrants provide photos, a plant list, a water bill and a brief story explaining why they installed their landscape and the benefits it provides.

Learn more about the judging criteria and participating agencies, and download an entry form at www.landscapecontest.com.
