Residential Landscape Water - We Use A Lot In Utah!

In Utah, we use more water per capita than any other state in the nation, except Nevada.  According to the Utah Department of Natural Resources, we use more than 50% of our water on our landscapes!  That's a lot of water!
We can cut back our water usage by reducing the need in the landscape.  This can be done by:
 - reducing the size of our turf-grass lawns
 - watering more efficiently - less often and in the morning and evening
 - planting waterwise plants, trees and shrubs in areas of the yard that are sunny and hot
