Watering in the early morning (between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.) saves money and water, while keeping your plants and trees healthier.
• Helps reduce water loss from evaporation due to heat and wind.
• Improves soil absorption so water and nutrients get to plant roots, where it’s needed most.
Consider permeable alternatives for driveways, patios and walkways that allow water to soak into the soil and reduce runoff.
Use bricks or blocks set in sand, gravel, or wood chips.
Use 2 to 4 inches of organic mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and save hundreds of gallons of water a year.
By making careful choices in our homes and businesses, we can keep our creeks, lakes, and communities healthy.
