Water-Wise is a voluntary conservation landscape certification program that allows property owners to be recognized for implementing best management practices in their lawns and gardens. Landowners can help reduce pesticides use, increase water quality, provide wildlife habitat, and much more! Check out the yardstick and see if your property measures up. You just need 36 inches to become certified. Once certified, you will receive a small aluminum sign to display. The first step is to fill out the application. Garrett County Master Gardeners will be visiting your site to complete the certification process. This program mimics the popular and successful BayWise Program.
