WATER WISE: Watering Saving Tips

There are many things you can do to save water in your garden and landscape. Here are some helpful tips.

  • Water your yard during the cool part of the day. Watering between 4am and 10am reduces evaporation and interference from the wind.
  • Don’t water the gutter & sidewalk. Position your sprinklers in such a way that water lands on your lawn or garden, not on concrete.
  • Check for leaks in pipes, hoses, faucets and couplings. Even the smallest drip from a worn washer can waste 50 or more gallons a day.
  • Water your lawn only when it needs it. A good way to see if your lawn needs water is to walk across it. Turn around and if you can see your footprints then it needs water.
  • Place a layer of mulch around trees and plants. A layer of mulch will keep the soil moist longer.
  • Plant water-wise trees and plants in your garden. There are many beautiful water-wise plants available.
  • Use a broom to clean driveways, sidewalks and steps. Using a broom saves 150 gallons each time.
  • Don’t run the hose while washing the car. This saves 150 gallons each washing.
  • Check sprinkler and drip systems for missing heads, holes, detached lines and for the proper placement of drip emitters. Our 2 and 4 legged family can easily wreak havoc with the sprinkler system.
