Check out these water-efficient landscaping tips:
- Find and fix outdoor leaks. Outdoor leaks can be very wasteful and costly. To find leaks in your sprinkler system, walk your irrigation lines and inspect the valves. Check for unusual wet spots and leaky or broken sprinkler heads. Algae, mushrooms, or slime often suggest a leak.
- Soil type and irrigation efficiency vary from garden to garden. Use these recommendations as a starting point to find the best practice for your landscaping.
- Try dividing your irrigation time into multiple periods per day for better soil absorption. Compost is a good soil amendment for compacted soils. It also aids in water absorption and provides soil nutrients.
