On June 9, 2011 it was announced that the San Diego Horticultural Society, in partnership with the San Diego County Water Authority, had won three awards at the 2011 San Diego County Fair & Garden Show.

The 1,000 square foot display is an excellent example of an attractive, colorful and water-efficient residential garden comprised of a wide variety of WaterSmart plants, permeable hardscape and a garden sculpture made completely from recycled materials.
