Did you know that the worst thing you can do for your lawn is over water, especially in the spring when roots are re-awakening and determining their depth based on how much water is available to them?
Did you know that your sprinkler system may be your worst enemy?
The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has determined that homes with in-ground automatic irrigation systems use 35% more water than those without irrigation systems. And those households using automatic timers for their irrigation systems use 47% more than their neighbors with in-ground systems operating their systems manually.
Poor irrigation scheduling—watering too often and for too long—is the primary source of water waste associated with landscape irrigation. You may be using a lot more water than your lawn needs and if you are a Dallas Water Utilities customer, you can have a FREE irrigation system evaluation by a licensed landscape irrigation specialist. These evaluations have saved customers hundreds of dollars per year on their water bill.
Our goal in Water Conservation is to help you save water! All recommendations are subject to the homeowner’s discretion, but each recommendation will save you money.
