Watering tips

You can conserve water while meeting the needs of your garden in several ways:

■ Use mulch to slow evaporation

■ Water in early morning or at sunset or later

■ Consider soaker hoses or trickle irrigation

■ Sprinkle your garden uniformly at a rate slow enough to prevent runoff

■ Check your soil first to determine whether watering is needed
