Outdoor Conservation Tips
If each person can implement a single water-wise principle, we can collectively work our way to significant water savings. If we each save a little, we’ll all save a lot. Slow the Flow: Save H2O.
- Remove lawn and replace it with with water wise plants
- Adjust your watering schedule to the season
- Turn off your irrigation and sprinkler systems if it is windy or raining
- Look for the yellow water-wise tag when you buy plants
- Group plants with similar water needs together
- Cover pools or hot tubs to avoid evaporation
- Start with a small area of your landscaping and make it water-wise
- Raise your lawn-mower to a cutting level of 3″: Longer grass leads to a healthier root system
- Regularly monitor your sprinkler system to check for:
- Malfunctioning valves
- Broken sprinkler heads or pipes
- Water spraying sidewalks or driveways
- Inefficient watering patterns
- Water brown spots in the lawn by hand, rather than turning on the entire system
- Don’t water your lawn everyday, only when it needs it. No more than 3 times a week!
- Don’t water during the heat of the day, or between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
