Water-Wise Landscaping

About half of residential water use is used outdoors. That means that replacing your thirsty lawns with water-wise landscaping can result in huge water savings and keep money in your pocket. 

There are many resources available to Windsor residents to help transform our community to a beautiful, water-wise, and pollinator friendly environment. 

Remember to sign up for the Water Efficient Landscape Rebate before removing your lawn!
