If you belong to or manage an owner association, whether for single or multi-family homes or a commercial setting, which has responsibility for common landscape areas and/or jurisdiction over landscape standards for its owners, and your association wants to promote water-wise landscape practices, this page is for you!
Having grown out of a broad-based coalition in 2008, including seasoned owner association representatives, developers, utility providers and landscape service professionals, Water Returns is very attuned to both the challenges and benefits of integrating sustainable landscape practices into a community’s values and standards
We know how to make sustainable landscape practices work in harmony with the governance side of association business; members of our leadership team have written design guidelines, managed the design review process and contractor relations, and served as board members and consultants for declarant and owner directed associations.
We understand the limits of staff, time, financial resources and expertise that associations wrestle with when trying to convert their thirsty landscaped grounds to something more water and dollar wise (and helping their owners do the same).
