WATER CONSERVATION
To look around Utah,  most would never guess that it is actually the second-driest state in the nation – averaging only 13 inches of water each year.  Working together to practice easy water conservation techniques, such as water-wise landscaping is a huge step toward ensuring enough water for now and into the future. 

DO YOUR PART - BE WATER SMART
What can you do to use water efficiently?  

Landscaping Tips

Diversify your landscape.  Add hardscaping to existing landscape.  Hardscaping can be more water and energy efficient, which can save you money - plus, it is natural to our area and looks much better.

Use low-water use and adapted plants and trees.   Ask your local nursery professional about Utah-friendly landscape materials, such as low-water use plants, bushes, trees, and turf grasses. 

Mulch It!  A good, thick layer of mulch (we're talking 3 to 4 inches here, folks) cools flowerbeds, inhibits weed growth, and slows the evaporation of water from the soil.  Place mulch around the bases of trees, shrubs and flowers to reduce evaporation.

Design for hydrozoning.  Consider the water needs of all plants included in your individual irrigation zones. Use plants with similar water needs in the same areas.
