Conserve water in a landscape by following a prescribed sequence in designing and managing the site.
Beauty and utility traditionally have been the purposes of home landscapes. Because water -- in both quality and quantity -- is becoming a limited resource, conservation has become a third goal. The homeowner can achieve all three by using careful, comprehensive planning.
You can reduce water consumption by 40-80 percent by following an appropriate sequence in designing and managing your site.
