SMWD is committed to helping our customers create and enjoy climate-friendly landscapes – landscapes that are efficient when it comes to water, resources, and labor. Landscapes that are visually appealing and enhance your quality of life. Landscapes that accentuate your lifestyle and enrich our community.
Find a landscape design professional to kick-off your project. The Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) is a great place to start. Link up with our local Qualified Water Efficient Landscapers (QWEL) to help meet your irrigation efficiency goals.
These contractors completed the SMWD Professional Contractor Training Course.
You can also find and select a CA Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA) licensed contractor at www.CLCA.org.
