California Friendly Garden Contest

California Friendly Garden Contest

Jun 4, 2007

A California Friendly garden? Since our Southern California summer's are generally dry, conserving water in our gardens is key. Corona Del Mar's famed Rogers Gardens is holding a contest for Orange County residents called the California Friendly Garden Contest. "California Friendly" is defined as yards that display plants and flowers in a water-conserving environment..."

Winners will be selected for their garden's beauty, use of low-water plants, irrigation efficiency, organic uses and water conservation. Nearly $5000 in cash prizes will be awarded. It's easy to enter. Just take three pictures of your front yard and fill out a brief online form. You can see some of the current entries here. They also have a great "inspiration" page. All the info is here at their website. Contest entry deadline is June 17th, 2007.
