Tips for Water Conservation Outside the Home

  • Don’t over-water your landscaping.
  • Water your lawn or garden early in the morning or late at night in order to allow the best chance of absorption instead of evaporation.
  • Adjust sprinklers so that they don’t water the sidewalk or street.
  • Don’t water on cool, rainy, or windy days.
  • Equip all hoses with shut-off nozzles.
  • Use drip irrigation systems instead of broadcast sprinklers, where possible, in order to minimize water evaporation.
  • Plant drought-tolerant or low-water-use plants and grasses.
  • Use shrubs and ground cover to reduce the amount of grass.
  • Place mulch around plants in order to reduce evaporation and discourage weeds.
  • Set your lawnmower blades one notch higher, since longer grass means less evaporation.
  • Use a pool cover to cut down on water evaporation.
  • Use a bucket instead of a hose to wash your car.
  • Use a broom rather than a hose to clean your driveway.
