Water Conservation Tip!

Conservation Tip

Did you know?
The middle of the day is the least efficient time to water your plants. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense Program, up to 30% of water can be lost to evaporation during midday.

At dawn and dusk, when the sun is low in the sky, evaporation rates are minimal and the wind tends to be calm enough that it doesn't blow the water away. Early morning watering also helps prevent the growth of fungus and is the best defense against slugs and other garden pests.
What you can do next:
-If you have an irrigation controller, program it to water at dawn or dusk.
-If you water by hand, plan to do it immediately after something you already regularly do in the early morning or evening (e.g. after eating breakfast).
-If you use a gardener, talk with them about water conservation and efficient irrigation practices. Make sure that they are only watering at appropriate times.

After changing the time you water or irrigate, carefully monitor lawns and plants for signs of excessive hydration. If grass or plants begin to yellow, have droopy leaves, or show signs of mold growth, the frequency of watering will need to be reduced.
