Best Time to Water

Water early for the best results.

Watering in the early morning (between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.) saves money and water, while keeping your plants and trees healthier.

Watering early when the sun is low and winds are calm:

• 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.

WaterShed Smart Tips:

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.

WaterSmart Tips:

Use 2 to 4 inches of organic mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and save hundreds of gallons of water a year.
