The title is not intended as rhetorical. Stopping overwatering is a great mixture of really simple (use an automatic shut off nozzle!) and really big (remove your turf grass) actions that, when done community wide, have a tremendous impact. Fortunately, there are a lot of medium actions in between like using a watering index or installing a rain barrel.
But even if it seems like there is something for everybody, maybe we haven’t hit that right tip for you. We’re eager to learn how we can better help all of the residents of Orange County stop overwatering and start finding sustainable solutions to beautify your outdoors while protecting the environment.
