Shops at Lake Havasu awarded for water conservation

Excerpt: By revamping their landscaping with more desert-loving plants, The Shops at Lake Havasu has cut its water consumption by 42 percent since 2014.

Excerpt: The Shops had previously hired a landscaping company from Las Vegas to bring in plants to go around the mall.
