Landscape Transformation Program
Metropolitan Water District’s Landscape Transformation program is being offered as a new program designed to promote water use reduction and sustainability. Following the success of other incentive programs focusing on landscaping and turf grass removal, the Landscape Transformation Program aims to combine elements of grass removal, irrigation modification and water retention or filtration to support reuse or soil absorption of rainwater.
The Landscape Transformation Program takes a multi-pronged approach to maximize water utilization and conservation. Removing turf grass is one of the most water conscious adjustments a business or organization can make to reduce their water usage and associated costs. Converting irrigation systems to drip, hand-watering or installing modified sprinkler heads or systems ensures that water used is only exactly what is needed. Finally, the addition of a sustainable approach in the new landscape plan works to reduce or prevent wasteful runoff through the use of a rainwater capture or filtration system.
