- Water lawns during the early morning when temperatures and wind speed are the lowest.
- Use sprinklers that throw big drops of water close to the ground.
- Use a water timer on hose-end sprinklers to avoid over-watering.
- Use mulch to retain moisture in the soil. Mulch also helps reduce soil compaction from raindrops and helps control weeds that compete with landscape plants for water. @(Model.BulletStyle == CivicPlus.Entities.Modules.Layout.Enums.BulletStyle.Decimal ? "ol" : "ul")>
