The mission of the Center for Water-Efficient Landscaping is to promote water conservation through environmentally, socially, and economically sound landscape management practices. Currently, it is estimated that approximately 50-65% of our culinary water in Utah is used for landscape irrigation uses. Research has demonstrated that the amount of water used in landscapes could be reduced substantially without affecting the quality of the landscape or the lifestyles of consumers through efficient use of water and understanding of water issues. Water use could be reduced even further if alternative landscape designs and management programs were used. Faculty associated with the Center for Water Efficent Landscaping research issues related to water conservation in the landscape.
