Did you know that one-third of the water Americans use daily is used to irrigate lawns, water gardens, and maintain landscaping?

More alarming, up to fifty percent of that water goes to waste due to overwatering, runoff, and evaporation.

With a few simple steps, we can significantly reduce the amount of water we use--and waste--on our landscapes, lawns and gardens without compromising their health or appearance.

July is Smart Irrigation Month, and EPA is encouraging homeowners and businesses across the country to take a closer look at their outdoor water use.

There are several simple steps you can take to save water and money such as

  • Plant native plants
  • Properly apply mulch
  • Avoid watering driveways and sidewalks
  • Use micro-irrigation (such as soaker hoses)
  • Use in-ground sprinkler systems
  • Create swales and water gardens to prevent runoff
