A few things to consider when watering your lawn

You can water your lawn twice a week and still have a healthy lawn! Most homeowners over-water their lawns, which can harm lawn quality more than under-watering. A few things to consider:

  • Over-watering is not just bad for your lawn - it’s also bad for the environment.
  • Water only when grass and plants begin to show signs of distress.
  • Watering before plants need it produces weaker landscapes and lawns with shallow root systems that are more susceptible to drought conditions.
  • Water conservation helps us as a community to be good stewards of our environment, and take care of our precious natural resources for years to come! 

While we have plenty of water supply for our residents, the increased demand for water at specific times may strain our system. By reducing the number of days you water your lawn, you’ll be helping lessen the demand for water at peak times, ensuring that our water system is running smoothly!
