In May of 2010, Marian Marum joined with her Client, Solar Turbines, in accepting the E.A.R.T.H. award for the creation of the WaterSmart Landscape at the Solar Turbines Kearny Mesa Campus. After removing 2 acres of water-consuming turf, Solar transformed their property into a stunning water-conservation garden, that now serves as a model for other corporations in the region. Water use at the facility declined by 80% after the transformation. The Award is given to exemplary projects by San Diego Earthworks and stands for ‘Environmental Action & Restoration That Helps’.
