More than 40% of the City’s total water demand is used for irrigation and outdoor activities. Consider these water saving recommendations to reduce water consumption and maintain a beautiful landscape.
Water your lawn only when needed; once every four days is best.
Turn-off automated irrigation system when rain is predicted; leave it off until soil dries and needs water again.
Maintain a thick layer of mulch on beds to reduce water loss from the soil and minimize weed growth.
Set lawn mower blades to cut grass 2-3' tall, leave grass clippings.
Hand water landscape areas that need more water than other areas.
Use a hose spray nozzle with a shutoff handle that stops water flow when not in use.
Use a broom to sweep debris off pavement.
Choose drought resistant and native plants and create hydro zones where plants with similar water requirements are grouped together.
Collect rain water to use in the landscape.
