Congratulations to James and Cynthia Hughes, winners of SNWA's Yard of the Month

Congratulations are in order for James and Cynthia Hughes, who have won the SNWA's Yard of the Month. The couple was inspired to remove their grass as a part of the Water Smart Landscapes program, and have since replaced it with a striking assortment of drought tolerant plants such as Agave, Spurge, Pink Lady Indian Hawthorne, Silverberry, English Ruellia and Coral Fountain, as well as a vegetable garden.

Their have been other bonuses aside from the beauty of the new plants and functionality of the vegetable garden, too. When it came to the water bills, James stated “The month before we made the conversion, our water bill was probably close to $300,” he said. “A month after we finished it, our bill dropped to $60.”

“And some of them since have been about $30,” Cynthia said.
