Water conservation for landscape and irrigation design


We must create the landscape of the future. In response to severe drought, the City reduced water consumption in municipal operations by over 40 percent between 2013 and 2015, saving approximately 35 million gallons of water and $200,000 in utility costs per year. The City achieved these results mainly by reducing irrigation and fixing leaks and continuing these trends requires a long-term transition to new and evolving approaches to landscape and irrigation design that not only contribute to Berkeley’s beauty and livability, but also minimize water consumption.
