Southern Nevada Landscape Awards

Water-Smart landscaping

More than half of the water consumed in Southern Nevada is used for landscape watering, particularly sprinkler irrigation of grass lawns. In partnership with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), the Southern Nevada Landscape Awards contest proves that water-efficient landscapes can be lush and colorful outdoor living spaces.

Is your beautiful water-smart landscape the talk of the neighborhood? Share it with us and help spread the word that water-smart living has a style all its own.

Enter the Southern Nevada Landscape Awards!

Each Southern Nevada Landscape Awards entrant will receive a voucher for one free adult admission to the Springs Preserve!

While entries are accepted year-round, the deadline to be considered for the 2014 Southern Nevada Landscape Awards has passed. Entries are now being accepted for the 2015 Awards, which will be held summer of 2015.

Your Southern Nevada Landscape Awards entry may be for front yard, back yard or both front and back yards. The entries may be for a new landscape or an upgrade of a previous landscape. The contest is split into homeowner and professional categories.
