Water Smart Contractor

Local Las Vegas landscape contractors can join the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) Water Smart Contractor program at no cost.

Companies participating in the Water Smart Contractors program ensure their staff members are trained in water-efficiency practices through free, SNWA-sponsored workshops. In turn, SNWA features these companies in its Find a Landscaper section, which local residential and commercial property owners use to find licensed contractors.

Cacti Landscapes is a proud participant, and you can find Cacti’s profile on the SNWA website here.
