SACRAMENTO--()--Save Our Water, California’s official statewide conservation education program, and ScottsMiracle-Gro, one of the most recognized lawn and gardening entities in the U.S, are joining efforts to help Californians make permanent changes to outdoor landscaping. The effort expands on Save Our Water’s “Fix It For Good” public education campaign, which was launched in September to capitalize on Californians’ interest in fixing their landscapes for good.

Save Our Water has launched a revamped Landscaping 101 page on its website where Californians can find a wealth of information and tips from partners such as ScottsMiracle-Gro. The Landscaping 101 site includes links to 38 regional water-smart gardening websites that offer Californians more in-depth information and visuals as they seek inspiration as they rethink their landscaping.

“ScottsMiracle-Gro is committed to helping Californians save water while maintaining beautiful – yet water efficient – landscaping,” said Mark Slavens, ScottsMiracle-Gro Vice President of Environmental Affairs. “Save Our Water has done incredible work to educate the public on water-saving techniques. We are happy to support the 'Fix It For Good' campaign by educating the public on landscape options, such as drought-resistant lawn varieties and water-wise irrigation, to remain water-smart permanently.”

ScottsMiracle-Gro is supporting California’s water-reduction efforts with extensive tools to create dynamic outdoor spaces that are low-maintenance, save water, and inspire. As part of the effort, ScottsMiracle-Gro has launched a new California-specific website at www.scottsmiraclegro.com/California.

As part of this partnership, ScottsMiracle-Gro has included the Save Our Water logo, website and tips on retail displays in hundreds of California home improvement and home and garden retail locations. Additionally, ScottsMiracle-Gro has partnered financially with Save Our Water to help expand the reach of the program.

“This partnership with ScottsMiracle-Gro will only further Save Our Water’s educational reach and create water-saving landscape solutions for more Californians,” said Jennifer Persike, Deputy Executive Director of External Affairs and Member Services of the Association of California Water Agencies.
