The Central Iron County Water Conservancy District and the Utah Division of Water Resources are teaming up to host a Water-Efficient Landscape Workshop in Cedar City on March 14th and 15th. This two-day event aims to educate residents about creating water-wise landscapes using the Localscapes method and participating in the Landscape Incentive Program.

Scheduled from 10 am to 2 pm each day, with a lunch break from noon to 1 pm, the workshop invites interested individuals to register on the District’s website, Attendees are encouraged to come prepared with ideas for transitioning their lawn areas to water-efficient landscaping.

The workshop will provide attendees with comprehensive guidance on applying for the incentive program. Eligible participants will leave with a completed application and a landscape design tailored to their yard using Localscapes principles.


The Landscape Incentive Program, facilitated by Utah Water Savers, offers residents of Cedar City and Enoch financial support of up to $3 per square foot for replacing grass with water-wise landscaping. Jessica Staheli, the District Water Conservation Manager, emphasizes the workshop's relevance for anyone undertaking home landscape updates or planning a new yard.

While the incentive does not apply to new construction, new homeowners can still benefit from attending to learn about Localscapes and develop a landscape design for their property. Localscapes, developed by the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, offers a systematic approach tailored to Utah's unique climate. It emphasizes key elements such as central open areas, gathering spaces, activity zones, paths, and planting beds to reduce maintenance, improve functionality, simplify irrigation, lower water bills, and enhance curb appeal.

With the aim of fostering sustainable landscaping practices and conserving water resources, the Water-Efficient Landscape Workshop promises valuable insights and practical guidance for residents of Central Iron County.
