Ways To Save Water In Your Yard

Use mulch to retain moisture and prevent erosion in your yard. Grass clippings, leaves, and yard trimmings can also be added to plant beds to retain moisture and add nutrients.

 

Never put different types of irrigation heads in the same irrigation zone. Different heads deliver different amounts of water, so don’t mix them.

 

Water early in the morning to avoid losing your water to evaporation. Watering in the evening may cause fungus and disease. Irrigation is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

 

Check your irrigation system monthly. Fix broken or misdirected sprinklers and make sure your timer is reset after power outages.

 

Turn off sprinklers when it’s raining or windy. State law requires rain sensors on all automatic irrigation systems installed after 1991.

 

Use a rain gauge or small wide-mouth can to measure how much water your sprinkler delivers in an hour. Only 3/4-inch of water per area is needed for a healthy lawn.

 

Use native plants and groundcovers and reduce the amount of turf in your yard. Natives require little water, no fertilizers, have few pests and diseases, and tolerate poor soils.
