Garden Show and Tell


A water wise garden in the front yard of a residence

Receive a free California native plant for sharing a photo of your water-wise garden!

More and more Pasadena residents are replacing their water-thirsty lawns with drought tolerant and native plants and adding water capture features like rain barrels, swales, berms, and dry riverbeds.  PWP wants to give residents an opportunity to ‘show and tell’ to the community their landscape transformations and start a ripple effect by encouraging others to join in!

How to Participate

April 1 thru May 31, PWP water customers can email up to 3 photos of their garden to Please use the subject line Garden Show and Tell on email submissions.  Each submission that meets the photo guidelines will be highlighted in our photo gallery, receive a voucher for a California native plant from a local nursery while supplies last, and may be featured in our Garden of the Week!
