Beat the Heat!

Watering your yard first thing in the morning is a great first step to water-efficient landscaping.

The best time to water your yard is in the early morning or late evening when it's cool outside. Watering when it's hot and sunny is wasteful because most of the water evaporates before the plants have time to drink it.

Also, when you're helping your parents water the yard, make sure not to water the plants too much—remember that a little sprinkle goes a long way!
