Landscaping for Water Conservation

Outdoor water use accounts for a significant proportion of the City's water demand. More than 40% of total water demand is used for irrigation and outdoor activities, which can increase by an additional 20% during drought. Water conservation is an essential strategy to manage Sugar Land's water resources for the future, and the city encourages year-round water efficiency and conservation. 

By choosing to landscape with plants that are water efficient and adapted to our region, you can help conserve water for your home and community. Earth-Kind Landscaping offers a comprehensive resource list of plants well-adapted to our region.
