Water Conservation Garden


The Water Conservation Garden Project was constructed under the auspices of a Joint Powers Authority comprised of Helix Water District, Otay Water District and Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District. The Water Conservation Garden, designed to demonstrate landscaping techniques that could result in water savings in the range of 35–70%, serves as an educational facility, resource outlet and learning center focusing on cost-effective gardening through reduced labor and water efficiency in landscape. The facility also supports a Community Amphitheater and Continuous Decomposed Granite Paths throughout. Highland was instrumental in coordination of Garden design and construction proposals, irrigation equipment exhibits, retrofitting landscape for water efficiency, turf selection, groundcover & hardscape, slope plantings, Xeriscape exhibits and management of in-kind donations.
