Two Easy Sprinkler Tips that Go a Long Way
Save water and money by adjusting your sprinkler timer. Here’s how:
- Water your landscapes before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. At that time, temperatures are cooler and the air is calmer so evaporation is kept to a minimum.
- Water your landscapes twice a week. Watering thoroughly, but infrequently, will help roots go deeper, resulting in more water–efficient, drought–tolerant plants. Note: Newer plantings, vegetables, and potted plants may need more frequent watering. Be sure to check with your local garden center or landscape professional for more specific information on how much water your plants needs.
Adopt this good housekeeping practice and you’ll not only avoid watering your neighborhood’s sidewalks, but you’ll be helping to keep Orange County’s beaches and waterways safe for everyone to enjoy!
