Can’t make the free workshop? Here are some water saving tips: 

  • Don’t drown – The greatest waste of water comes from applying too much, too often. Water a few times for shorter periods and take 15-minute breaks. This will allow water to soak in, while minimizing runoff.
  • Watch the clock – Water between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Mid-day watering is less efficient due to evaporation and windy conditions. Watering in the evening means leaves remain wet and can grow fungus.
  • Consider dripping – When it comes to watering individual trees, flowerbeds, potted containers, or other non grassy areas, consider applying water directly to the roots using low volume drip irrigation. This reduces water waste and prevents unwanted weeds from growing and can save up to 80% water usage!
