Other tips from this area
Use porous materials for walkways and patios to prevent wasteful runoff and keep water in your yard.
Leave lower branches on trees and shrubs and allow leaf litter to accumulate on the soil. This keeps the soil cooler and reduces evaporation.
Spreading a layer of organic mulch around plants helps them retain moisture, saving water, time and money.
Next time you add or replace a flower or shrub, choose a low-water-use plant.
For automatic water savings, direct water from rain gutters to water your plants.
We’re more likely to notice leaky faucets indoors, but don’t forget to check outdoor faucets, pipes, and hoses.
Use a broom instead of a hose to clean patios, sidewalks and driveways, and save water every time.
Collect water from your Air-conditioning systems and dehumidifier in a bucket & use the water for your plants
Be sure your irrigation system is watering only the areas intended, with no water running onto walks, streets or down the gutter.
