To further encourage customers to reduce outdoor water use, Vallecitos participates in a regional "WaterSmart" landscape contest to award customers whose yards best exhibit the beauty of California-friendly, low-water gardening. Vallecitos' first place winner receives a $250 gift certificate to a local nursery and recognition at a Vallecitos Board meeting. Second and third place winners also earn gift certificates (in lesser amounts).  If you're proud of your water-wise yard, we encourage you to enter the contest!

Congratulations to the 2018 winners!

  • First place - Rhonda Holmes and Jeff Jenco
  • Second place - Dennis and Shannon Root
  • Third place - Patti Joyce and Jeffrey Moore
