Landscapes: Conserving Water


Most of the water used in a household is for the outdoors. Here are some things to think

about regarding your outdoor water use.

  • Water less often but longer. This encourages deeper plant roots and increases soil moisture, albeit at deeper levels.

  • Raise sprinkler heads that are blocked by shrubs or other foliage.

  • Check your irrigation system, if you have one, check for leaks. An irrigation system that has just one leak about the diameter of the thickness of a dime can waste about 6,300 gallons of water in one month. This is more water than two adults need for an entire month.

  • Plant beautiful California Natives to create a landscape that is both beautiful and less water intensive.
