WINTER IS HERE. Time to Reduce Your Watering!
Change in seasons means change in water use
Winter is here, and it’s time to adjust the way we use water. Most plants, including your lawn, require far less water this time of year, due to their cycle of dormancy. Even as the weather remains warm, lawns only need four to six minutes of watering two to three days per week. Established shrubs, trees and California-Friendly plants require even less. If you see water running off your lawn or garden onto the sidewalk and curb, you’re watering too much.
As the weather changes, so does your water budget. Follow these easy steps to become water-efficient and remain within your water budget:
