Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance Compliance 

1/2 Day Workshop for Landscape Professionals – Lecture, Group Activities + Q&A



$45 for members & $55 for general tickets


Calling all Landscape Architects, Designers, Contractors, Plan Checkers, DIY Landscapers and Garden Geeks who can all benefit from the skills and insights on MWELO Compliance.

  • What is MWELO?  What are MAWA and ETWU?
  • What does WUCOLS have to do with it?  Or CIMIS?
  • What is ETo and how does it compare to your local climate?
  • Does it matter? Do you design with Plant Factors in mind? 
  • Do you have a checklist to make sure you got it right?


The current Landscape Irrigation Ordinance is being enforced more and more! Changes made in 2015 are much more restrictive -but holistic and make sense. Still, few have a good handle on strategic workflows and appreciate the law.

  • Learn the basics and some details regarding why this ordinance is so cool.
  • Get clear on how to implement the ordinance and some tricks to doing it efficiently.
  • Understand the intricate balance of soil, plants, irrigation components, and other elements that make the current MWELO so comprehensive.
  • Take your understanding of the ordinance to the next level and enjoy the process.


Why? The holistic watershed approach can only help our landscapes.
