Thank you for your interest in preserving Norwalk’s precious water resources. The water efficient landscape designs are a guide to assist you in planning your own drought tolerant garden. If you choose to use the information to install a new garden, the designs will need to be adapted to fit your property’s size and unique characteristics.Two concepts are available for each of the following property lot types: mid-block lot, corner lot, and cul de sac lot. Option 1 contains lawn in the back yard and option 2 may or may not have some lawn. An example of an alternative parkway design is also available.
