Install low-flow irrigation heads and a smart irrigation controller. Hire a pro to make sure it operates smoothly and efficiently.
Water early in the morning before 10:00 AM to reduce evaporation.
Water deeply, but infrequently.
Water in split applications so you avoid runoff.
During dry periods, raise your mower height.
Never irrigate when it is raining. Save the money for another project.
Don’t irrigate your lawn and plants when it is windy.
Always avoid watering sidewalks and driveways.
Landscape with native plants when you have the opportunity.
Right plant, right place! Choose plants that fit your environment such as planting shade-loving plants in shade or plants that tolerate standing water in low-lying locations.
Replacing sod? Choose a drought tolerant variety. TifTuf Bermuda is proven to have a 38% water savings over TifwayBermuda and 50% savings over Tall Fescue.
