Use these tips to train your yard to need less water:

  • Check faucets, sprinklers and spigots for leaks
  • Water grass only on your watering day and only when you see signs of wilt, such as grass blades that are folded in half and blue-gray, and footprints that remain on the lawn
  • Check your irrigation system frequently to ensure you are watering the grass or shrubs, not paved areas
  • Set mower blade to highest level to encourage grass roots to grow deeper and hold moisture longer
  • Measure grass from the soil to the top of the grass blade to be sure you are cutting to the right height
