A Beautiful and Water Smart Yard and Garden

Spring is officially here. Are you gearing up for the upcoming growing season? Here are some tips for a beautiful and water smart yard and garden:

Invest in native plants

Native plants are better suited to our unique environment and require less water and care than non-native plants. They can add a lot of beauty to your yard, too! Look for native plants at your favorite nursery.

Use raised beds or grow boxes

They can help you fit a lot of garden into a small space! You get to control the type of soil that goes in the boxes, and if you water smart with drip instead of overhead spray, you’ll save water, your vegetable plants will be happier and you will have fewer weeds.

Plant a water-wise lawn

Some types of grass use a lot more water than others. Plant "water smart" grass varieties that are best suited for our climate. You’ll use less water and have to work less hard to have a beautiful lawn.

Plant Being Water Smart

Once you have your yard mapped out, look for the placement that will help each plant thrive. Put thirstier plants in some amount of shade, where the sun won’t drink up their precious water supply. Use mulch with your flowers, shrubbery and trees to combat evaporation and control weeds.
