To meet Georgia’s growing demands for water resources, the focus must be on how to use water more efficiently without sacrificing public health and environmental quality. This paper presents an introduction to and an overview of a new Extension bulletin that provides a comprehensive outline on best management practices (BMPs) for water conservation in landscapes. The new bulletin has been developed by a group of specialists with the Georgia Cooperative Extension Service from several disciplines including horticulture, turfgrass science and engineering. The bulletin has been designed particularly for green industry professionals in Georgia. The manual will be used for educational programs and as a resource for professional landscape managers, contractors, installers, designers and government officials, water purveyors and regulators.
