For smaller landscape projects, compliance with the Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance requires a simple checklist application. Your project qualifies as a Tier 1 project if it:

  • Includes 1,000 - 2,500 square feet of modified landscape
  • Is designed to include at least 75% low water use plants
  • Has less than 25% turf area

If your project has over 2,500 square feet of modified landscape area or over 500 square feet of new landscape area, please see the Tier 2 requirements.
