Motivate Your Community to Save Water Outdoors!
Replace high water-use plants and turf with native and desert-adapted, low water-use plants!
WE HAVE REACHED OUR TARGET HOA PARTICIPATION GOAL FOR THIS FISCAL YEAR, WITH PLANS TO ACCEPT MORE APPLICATIONS BY MID-2024
At that time, Tucson Water HOA commercial customers may apply to receive funding to offset the cost of a completed Landscape Design Plan for implementation of a landscape transformation.
As a result of substantial interest in landscape water conservation from Homeowner’s Associations, City of Tucson Water and the University of Arizona/Pima County Cooperative Extension/Smartscape program have developed the Tucson HOA Landscape Transformation Program. HOAs typically manage large landscaped common areas in residential neighborhoods. Since water used in the landscape is the ONLY water that cannot be recycled, this presents a unique opportunity for significant reductions in water use. Your community can reap many benefits by retrofitting these areas to sustainable, resilient landscapes with native and desert-adapted plants that are maintained using Smartscape best management practices.
Regardless of whether or not your HOA is interested in applying for the transformation program, if you are interested in residential landscape water conservation, you can start learning by attending our other free residential classes and/or by accessing our online educational resources.
