Water at the right time.

When you’re really trying to make an impact on water conservation, consider plants and grass types that require less water. You do not need to water your lawn every day. Most lawns can thrive by being watered 3x per week. Also always remember to never water when it is raining or in high winds.

Upgrade your sprinkler system.

Utilize technology designed to ensure your lawn gets the water it needs, never a drop more. In fact, it’s best to upgrade your irrigation system by installing an EPA WaterSense certified smart controller and highly efficient spray heads.

Adjust your system.

Adjust and align your sprinkler heads, preventing water from spraying on sidewalks, driveways, patios, and fences. This is one of the simplest ways to help conserve your property’s water as well as the environment.

Repair your system.

Broken sprinkler system components can waste enormous amounts of water. It is important to repair broken heads or leaking lines as soon as they are noticed. The sooner you fix a broken component, the sooner your water bill will go down and repairs are often easier for a professional to address if they are reported quickly.

Reduce watering.

When you’re really trying to make an impact on water conservation, consider plants and grass types that require less water. You do not need to water your lawn every day. Most lawns can thrive by being watered 3x per week. Also always remember to never water when it is raining or in high winds.
