Saving Water in your Garden Landscape

Did you know that you can save 20 to 50 percent of the water you currently use in your garden and landscape and actually improve your plants’ health?

Many people think that to save water they need to replace their current landscape with strictly “drought tolerant” plants, perhaps removing their lawn altogether. While drought tolerant landscapes and lawn removal could be useful options, they are just two of the many strategies that can be employed to reduce water use.

Remember that trees provide beauty, shade, cooling, privacy, and oxygen. They can also significantly increase property value. Even when water is in short supply, taking care of your trees should be a high priority.

See our Saving Water Brochure for more information.
