3 Landscape Maintenance Tips to Save Water, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

Creating and maintaining a beautiful yard can be one of the most rewarding parts of being a homeowner. Despite what you may think, you can have a vibrant landscape without driving up the cost of your water bill. With so many water-saving measures that you can utilize, proper landscape maintenance can be as easy as following three simple steps.

3 Water-Conserving Tips for Your Landscaping

1. Incorporate Native Plants

An easy way to reduce water consumption in your landscaping routine is to cultivate more native plants. Because native plants have adapted to thrive in their climate on their own, they don’t require much upkeep. 

2. Water Efficiently

Sprinklers watering grass for landscape maintenanceDuring the hotter months, up to a third of the water you use can evaporate before it provides the hydration your lawn needs. Watering in the morning when temperatures are cooler will give your plants more time to absorb the moisture. Additionally, a deep soak will better penetrate the soil to reach the roots.

3. Keep Your Grass Higher

Keeping your grass around three to four inches high will make your lawn much more effective at absorbing and maintaining the level of hydration it needs to stay healthy. You also won't need to mow as often, though when you do, leave the clippings to further fertilize the grass and trap moisture. The taller, more abundant grass will also push out any weeds.
