- When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
- Adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.
- Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
- Choose shrubs and groundcovers instead of turf for hard-to-water areas such as steep slopes and isolated strips.
- Install covers on pools and spas and check for leaks around your pumps.
- Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks.
- Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler to minimize evaporation.
- Spreading a layer of organic mulch around plants retains moisture and saves water, time and money.
- Collect the water you use for rinsing fruits and vegetables, then reuse it to water houseplants.
- If water runs off your lawn easily, split your watering time into shorter periods to allow for better absorption.
- We are more likely to notice leaks indoors, but don't forget to check outdoor faucets, sprinklers and hoses for leaks.
- Check the root zone of your lawn or garden for moisture before watering using a spade or trowel. If it is still moist two inches under the soil surface, you still have enough water.
- Adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better than if it is closely clipped.
- Use sprinklers for large areas of grass. Water small patches by hand to avoid waste.
- Collect water from your roof to water your garden. A rain barrel placed at the end of a gutter will collect rain water which can later be used to water your garden or yard.
- Designate one glass for your drinking water each day or refill a water bottle. This will cut down on the number of glasses to wash.
- Rather than following a set watering schedule, check for soil moisture two to three inches below the surface before watering.
- Install a rain sensor on your irrigation controller so your system won't run when it is raining.
- Use drip irrigation for shrubs and trees to apply water directly to the roots where it is needed.
- Reduce the amount of lawn in your yard by planting shrubs and ground covers appropriate to your site and region.
- Remember to check your sprinkler system valves periodically for leaks and keep the sprinkler heads in good shape.
- Don't water your lawn on windy days when most of the water blows away or evaporates.
- Water your plants deeply but less frequently to encourage deep root growth and drought tolerance.
- Know where your master water shut-off valve is located. This could save water and prevent damage to your home.
- Group plants with the same watering needs together to avoid overwatering some while under watering others.
- Use a layer of organic material on the surface of your planting beds to minimize weed growth that competes for water.
- Use a minimum amount of organic or slow release fertilizer to promote a healthy and drought tolerant landscape.
- Trickling or cascading fountains lose less water to evaporation than those spraying water into the air.
- Use a rain gauge, or empty tuna can, to track rainfall on your lawn. Then reduce your watering accordingly.
- Learn how to shut off your automatic watering system in case it malfunctions or you get an unexpected rain.
- Set a kitchen timer when watering your lawn or garden to remind you when to stop. A running hose can discharge up to 10 gallons a minute.
- Make sure there are water-saving aerators on all of your faucets. Next time you add or replace a flower or shrub, choose a low water use plant for year-round landscape color and save up to 550 gallons each year.
- Use a trowel, shovel, or soil probe to examine soil moisture depth. If the top two to three inches of soil are dry it's time to water.
- If installing a lawn, select a turf mix or blend that matches your climate and site conditions.
- When you save water, you save money on your utility bills too. Saving water is easy for everyone to do.
- Make sure your swimming pools, fountains, and ponds are equipped with re-circulating pumps.
- Consult with your local nursery for information on plant selection and placement for optimum outdoor water savings.
- Winterize outdoor spigots when temperatures dip below freezing to prevent pipes from leaking or bursting.
- Share water conservation tips with friends and neighbors.
- Leave lower branches on trees and shrubs and allow leaf litter to accumulate on the soil. This keeps the soil cooler and reduces evaporation.
- Use sprinklers that deliver big drops of water close to the ground. Smaller water drops and mist often evaporate before they hit the ground.
- Adjust your watering schedule each month to match seasonal weather conditions and landscape requirements.
- Wash your pets outdoors in an area of your lawn that needs water.
- Aerate your lawn at least once a year so water can reach the roots rather than run off the surface.
- For hanging baskets, planters and pots, place ice cubes under the moss or dirt to give your plants a cool drink of water and help eliminate water overflow.
- Throw trimmings and peelings from fruits and vegetables into your yard compost to prevent using the garbage disposal.
- When you have ice left in your cup from a take-out restaurant, don't throw it in the trash, dump it on a plant.
