The Water Positive™ Landscapes initiative is an integrated program that demonstrates how consumers and communities can make a positive impact on local water resources by growing the landscape they want.
We all know that water is essential to gardening and to all plant life. As the leader in the lawn and garden industry, it is our responsibility to help homeowners use water more efficiently and to protect it when using our products – ways that we’re calling Water Positive.
Coast to coast, The ScottsMiracle-Gro Foundation supports strong partnerships with a national network of organizations committed to water quality and conservation. Organizations protecting the Great Lakes, Long Island Sound, Chesapeake Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, coastal Florida and coastal California among others. Each partnership helps to focus and inform how home gardeners can become “Water Positive” through education and research.
Our goal is to provide homeowners with simple and actionable ways to use water more efficiently and responsibly. Water Positive solutions are designed to protect water quality and use water efficiently so that the benefits you get from growing fresh garden tomatoes or having the lawn you desire is all good. Landscapes that are as good for the environment as they are beautiful.
Achieving Water Positive status includes research on how our landscapes influence the larger watershed, which ultimately will impact future product formulations to make it easy for consumers to have a positive watershed impact. Take a behind the scenes look at the research that make water positive product design possible.
