Efficiently Water Your Landscaping
Increasing your outdoor water efficiency saves money. Most customers will find that they can remain in the second tier (under 20,000 gallons per month) by watering their lawns no more than every third day. This also promotes a deeper root system. Your lawn will be much more drought tolerant.
Water early in the morning to avoid excessive evaporation. This time of day is usually less windy and the water pressure is generally higher. Try to avoid watering paved areas and don't use your hose to wash sidewalks and driveways.
You can perform your own irrigation audit by simply reading your meter prior to the start of an irrigation cycle and reading it again immediately after the cycle is complete. This will give you the total number of gallons used per cycle.
