Design your WaterSmart Landscape

Even though you are not required to submit landscape design plans, it helps to have it as a reference for your plant and irrigation elements.

You can have a simple, hand-drawn design that uses simple icons to represent landscape elements, such as circles to show where trees will go. When thinking about the design of your new landscape, don’t forget to take advantage of all the landscape resources we have developed for you.

Explore our online flipbook, “A Homeowner's Guide to a WaterSmart Landscape” that offers step-by-step instructions for do-it-yourself homeowners who want to convert their landscapes into more water-efficient ones. Also, check out our RESOURCES  tab on this website for helpful tips.

It’s worth mentioning again that there is an excellent “How To” course. This class leads you step-by-step through the drawing of your plans. We highly recommend you take this short on-line class prior to developing your plans. Of course you always have the option of hiring a professional landscape designer/architect.
