Reduce the amount of lawn in your yard by planting shrubs and ground covers appropriate to your site and region.
Examine soil moisture
Use a trowel, shovel, or soil probe to examine soil moisture depth. If the top two to three inches of soil are dry it’s time to water.
Low water plants
Next time you add or replace a flower or shrub, choose a low water use plant for year-round landscape color and save up to 550 gallons each year. Click here for more information.
Use faucet aerators
Make sure there are water-saving aerators on all of your faucets.
Set a timer for hoses
Set a kitchen timer when watering your lawn or garden to remind you when to stop. A running hose can discharge up to 10 gallons a minute.
