In the Yard

  • Plant drought tolerant species in your yard.
  • Install a rain barrel and use the water it collects to water plants. 
  • Consider turning your water feature/fountain into a low maintenance art piece.
  • Instead of building a private pool, join a community pool.
  • Adjust your lawn mower height to 1.5 – 2 inches.  Longer grass shades roots, and allows for better moisture retention than shorter grass.
