WaterWise Landscape Tour

The WaterWise Landscape Tour is a free, self-guided event that's open to the public. Visit beautiful, sustainable Plano landscapes that thrived in the summer heat. Discover attractive, drought-tolerant plants that will inspire you to give them a try. Explore five Plano yards and the Environmental Education Center Saturday, October 20. Tour at your own pace, and visit as many or as few locations as you’d like. 

This year's tour is fast approaching and we're on the hunt for yards to showcase. Any yard that incorporates water-saving features is a contender. In addition we're looking for a variety of things including:

Native and adapted plants
Thoughtful and attractive designs with reduced turf areas
Rainwater harvesting
Efficient irrigation
Inviting patios and more
