Lower Your Bill While Reducing Your Water Footprint. 

For tips on how to reduce your water use:

  • Water less frequently and for a longer duration. This will help establish a deeper root system which also helps your lawn become more drought tolerant. When you do water, apply 1/2–3/4 inches. Once you have watered your lawn, hold off watering again it shows one or more signs of wilt. 

  • Check that your rain sensor is working properly. Rain sensors are designed to interrupt the automatic irrigation of your lawn when a rain event happens. To learn how to test yours, visit the Alliance for Water Efficiency site.

  • Reduce your turf grass area. Grass is your yard's biggest water user. Limit its use and save it for areas where children or pets play. 

  • Turn off irrigation zones with established trees and shrubs. Most shrubs can make it on rainfall alone once roots have established. This root growth normally occurs within 20–28 weeks after planting.
