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.
Identify places where water is causing erosion as it drains off your property.
Slow the flow with natural ground cover and divert water to landscape vegetation.
Group plants with the same watering needs together to avoid overwatering some while under-watering others.
Protect the native vegetation along a creek or wash, known as the "riparian buffer."
Riparian vegetation protects property and water quality by stabilizing stream banks, reducing erosion, filtering out pollutants, and provides habitat for birds and wildlife.
