- Step 2: The Selection Process and On-site Evaluation -
Each year, The Tampa Bay Community Water Wise Awards Program recognizes a selection of outstanding examples of Florida-Friendly Landscapes from across the Tampa Bay Region. Visit TampaBayWaterWise.org to learn more about the program and this year's evaluation of entries received for 2017.
If your landscape meets the basic criteria for the awards based on your application (Deadline: June 30, 2017), a local Florida-friendly landscaping representative will contact you to schedule an on-site evaluation of your landscape and irrigation.
On-site evaluations typically take place during July, August and September and award recipients are notified shortly thereafter.
Judges look for landscapes that balance attractive design with water-efficient irrigation, creating a positive impact on our water resources, native wildlife and aquatic environments.
