Ditch the Automatic Sprinkler
Automatic sprinklers can keep your yard up, but it can also waste a lot of money and water.
Water in the Morning
In the heat of the day, water will touch the surface and evaporate.
Use a Rain Gauge
A rain gauge can help you track how much water your yard is getting — about an inch of water per week is all it really needs.
Turn gutters into a watering system or use a rain barrel to collect the runoff. Check local laws first, as there may be restrictions on water collection.
