Helix is accepting entries through Friday, May 29, for the 2020 WaterSmart Landscape Contest.

In its 16th year, the contest seeks to recognize Helix Water District customers for their beautiful, colorful and water-efficient landscapes. Entries are judged for overall attractiveness, design, plant selection, efficient irrigation and appropriate maintenance. Residents who share their water-efficient landscape could win a $250 grand prize to the nursery of their choice.

To enter in this year’s contest, simply take a few photos of your water-efficient landscaping, share why you installed your landscaping, the types of plants you have and some of the benefits you see from your landscape. We would love to hear your story!

We understand that this spring is far from normal. The 2020 WaterSmart Landscape Contest is a great non-virtual opportunity to be outside. So get out in your yard, apply for the contest and inspire others.
