Designer At Your Door

Transform Your Yard into a Beautiful Water-Saving Landscape

The WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Program is a free educational program that will empower you to upgrade your high-water-use turf area into a WaterSmart landscape. This is done through workshops and our new Designer At Your Door service conducted by local landscape and irrigation professionals, all at no cost to you.

It’s FREE and it’s EASY so apply today!

To qualify for the Designer At Your Door program, you must take at least 5 three-hour workshops and be a homeowner in our service area.

The WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Program team is excited to announce the new ‘Designer at Your Door’ water conservation program. This program replaces our award winning Four-class Landscape Makeover Series with the same quality education combined with additional one-on-one support from industry professionals.

The WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Program is responsive to changing times and the changing needs of regional residents. The Designer at Your Door program core education classes retain our living curriculum model with special topic workshop classes available both virtually and on-line. Residential water conservation efforts will be further supported by more in-person design assistance for residents who have the qualifying criteria of a living lawn with a minimum size, a working in-ground irrigation system and a willingness to install a more sustainable landscape.

The WaterSmart team has helped regional residents convert over 1.5 million square feet of turf in a way that reduces landscape water use and provides a lifestyle friendly yard that loves our climate as much as we all do. We look forward to supporting your efforts in creating a landscape that improves your property’s environment and our larger regional environment.

The Designer at your Door program will officially begin in January 2023. Please feel free to apply now to be placed on the program waitlist.
