Your water-efficient landscape is beautiful, but is it the best on the block? There is only one way to know for sure, and that’s by entering it in the 2020 Community Water Wise Awards. In addition to neighborhood bragging rights, winners will take home a custom mosaic garden stepping stone. This year’s applications are due on August 31.
The Community Water Wise Awards program recognizes individuals and businesses that are committed to conserving water resources and protecting the environment. The five categories are: residential, multi-family, commercial, schools government and builder. So whether at home or at work, every landscape in our beautiful city can be Florida Friendly and Water-Wise.
To apply to this year’s contest, fill out the application at www.tampabaywaterwise.org. You can also request to receive an application by mail by calling (813) 274-5912. Valid entries will receive an onsite visit from a team of local landscape specialists as well as a written landscape evaluation from the Florida Friendly LandscapingTM Program to help you take your landscape “to the next level.”
