Find a QWEL Pro

The San Diego County Water Authority launched the QWEL program in January, 2016, and the list of certified graduates is growing. You can use our list to find a Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper in your area. NOTE: Some individuals who earned a QWEL certificate may not appear on the list due to publication choice or certificate expiration.

Trained in water-wise landscape practices including plant selection, irrigation system design and water management, a QWEL graduate will help meet your landscape needs while keeping your outdoor water use in check.

Water-efficient landscape practices, a soils overview, irrigation system programming, plant selection and water management are among the subjects included in the QWEL 20-hour professional certificate program.
