Water Saving Tips
You don’t need to make drastic changes to see a major difference in your greens – both in your wallet and your impact on the earth. Check out these simple tips for maximizing your water conservation and savings.
Fixing leaks can save up to 600 gallons of water per month. Check for leaks inside and outside.
Operate clothes and dishwasher only when full. This can save you as much as 1,000 gallons of water per month.
Shorten your shower by at least two minutes and you’ll save as much as 150 gallons per month.
Water your yard in the morning or evening to reducing evaporation loss of water.
Sweep instead of using water to clean your driveway, patio and sidewalks.
Recycle water used to rinse fruits, vegetables and rice to water plants and yard.
If the water flow easily off your yard onto the sidewalk, use shorter water periods to provide better water absorption.
Let your grass grow higher. A taller lawn shades roots and retains water better.
Use sprinklers for large areas of grass and water small patches by hand to limited waste.
Route rain water from your roof to your yard.
