Water Conservation

Be conscious of your water usage. The only water we will ever have on this planet is what we have right now!

Lawn Watering Tips

  • Water before 10:00am to minimize evaporation
  • Avoid watering when windy
  • Lawns that are frequently aerated absorb water better
  • Mulch around shrubs and other plantings so the soil holds moisture longer
