Opinion: How About an Award For Best Low-Water Landscaping?

Governor Brown's emergency drought orders ( ) reminded me of a suggestion I made some time ago that Monrovia ought to give out awards for the best low-water landscaping. I still think it is a good idea. After all, we give out awards for the best decorated homes for Halloween and Christmas. Same concept.

  1. I agree with Nancy. Incentivize and lead by highlighting examples.

  2. Agreed. Great idea.

  3. It can be daunting to think about changing an existing landscape that you have enjoyed for years. An award for low-water landscaping is a wonderful idea. It would allow neighbors an opportunity to visiulize what might work for them. Great idea.
