Sponsors of the Water-Wise Garden Contest included Sloat Garden Center, Home Depot, Colma and Ace Hardware of Manor and Linda Mar.

Water-wise gardens are becoming increasingly popular throughout California, as many drought tolerant plants offer vibrant colors and textures, and need little water or maintenance.
