Water Savvy Garden Tour
Be inspired to turn your yard into an efficient, water-saving landscape!
Each spring, CVWD hosts a Water Savvy Garden Tour (previously Landscape Tour) to educate residents about the beauty and benefits of water saving landscapes. Since it's inception in 2009, the Water Savvy Garden Tour has educated over 600 residents on how they can make changes in their yards to use water efficiently. The tour typically includes visits to 10-15 sites - including commercial sites, public parks and parkways, and homes - that have installed low-water use plants, efficient irrigation systems, and hardscapes. The tour includes residential landscapes that are winners from CVWD’s annual Water Savvy Landscape Contest.
CVWD’s Landscape Tour provides the opportunity to build valuable partnerships with groups such as the Maloof Foundation and the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Master Gardeners, who acted as docents at various tour locations. Additionally, featured landscape owners participated at their homes by sharing their experiences with tour participants, so participants could ask questions and learn first-hand about their landscaping successes.
A condensed self-guided tour is available year round, consisting of multiple water efficient landscape within Rancho Cucamonga. View the list of landscapes and addresses.
