HC Resident Wins EcoScape

Haltom City Resident & Ecoscape Winner Betty PorterIn an effort to raise awareness of wasteful water usage the Fort Worth Water Department and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) partnered to challenge area homeowners to create the perfect, water efficient landscape and compete in the EcoScape residential landscape contest. Residents with 1,000 square foot (or larger) front yard were eligible and were asked to submit their water efficient yards that use native/adaptive plants and mix according to color, aesthetic appeal, and plant variety.

The winners of the contest are:

  • 1st place, Betty Porter, 3217 Field Street, Haltom City
  • 2nd place, Kathy Clark, 4005 W. 6th Street, Fort Worth
  • 3rd place, Rick Tucker, 2517 Ryan Avenue, Fort Worth

Each will receive a winner’s sign and a membership to BRIT. In addition the first place winner receives a compost bin and a 50-gallon rain barrel.

“Congratulations to our winners for their creative and efficient lawn,” says Assistant Water Director Kara Shuror. “Employing water saving methods like rain water harvesting, composting, drip irrigation, and planting native and

adaptive plants not only helps lower monthly water bills, but can also significantly reduce the amount of water needed from area lakes.”

It is estimated that up to 50% of all water used in the summer months goes to residential landscapes.

The EcoScape Contest was open to residential landscapes within Fort Worth city limits and Fort Worth’s wholesale customer cities, including Aledo, Bethesda Water Supply Corp., Burleson, Crowley, Dalworthington Gardens, Edgecliff Village, Everman, Forest Hill, Grand Prairie, Haltom City, Haslet, Hurst, Keller, Kennedale, Lake Worth, Northlake, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Roanoke, Saginaw, Southlake, Trophy Club Municipal Utility District, Westlake, Westover Hills, Westworth Village and White Settlement. The judging criteria included design aesthetic appeal through composition, use of color, and plant variety; water conservation; and overall yard/plant health.

In hopes of making this an annual contest, BRIT and the Fort Worth Water Department will again sponsor the competition next year. Applications will be available on the Haltom City and BRIT web sites.
