Based on the award-winning A Homeowner's Guide to a WaterSmart Landscape, participants will receive an introduction to the knowledge, skills and resources needed to create a WaterSmart landscape as well as learn the concepts required to ensure that if they hire a contractor to install their new landscape, it will be WaterSmart. Other students will be motivated to register for the full, four-class WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Series, while accomplished do-it-yourself students will be able to move forward on their own.

The workshop slide presentation can be viewed here: Design for Homeowners slide presentation.

The objective of the program is to empower homeowners to take action to upgrade their existing water-intensive landscapes to WaterSmart standards, leading to significant water and energy savings.
