California American Water (CAW) nominated Sacramento customers Dorothy and Daniel Delgado to be featured in the #Rethink Your Yard billboard campaign. Sponsored by the Regional Water Authority and Sacramento-area water providers, the campaign showcases local residents who have made permanent water-wise changes to their landscape. The Delgados replaced 3,000 square feet of their thirsty front lawn with 260 colorful, low-water-use plants and meandering pathways. With $4,600 in rebates from CAW, the couple removed turf and two juniper plants and installed a weather-based sprinkler timer. The Delgados’ hard work earned them the “Yard-of-the-Month” award as well as the cover story in the July 8, 2016, Home & Garden section of The Sacramento Bee.
