How To Use Less Water To Design Your Landscape

Cutting down on water when landscaping is good for the environment and can help you save money on your next water bill. The Environmental Protection Agency is urging everyone to cut down on their water use but that doesn’t mean your landscaping needs to stop. Here are some tips to help you landscape your home using as little water as possible.

  • A water budget is an EPA sponsored tool that can help you find out if your landscape plan works with recommended water consumption levels in your area.
  • Consider deep rooted shrubs over flowers for less soil erosion and watering and plant in areas with more sun exposure.
  • Having turf grass can increase your water usage. Consider different types of grass that will take less water. A rock garden is beautiful and elegant and does not need any watering.
  • Try taking breaks in between mowing your lawn to allow your grass to grow. Longer grass will have deeper roots that can better absorb water.
