What you can do to save water and have a green lawn
- If you are building a new home or laying new sod, be sure there is at least 6 inches of topsoil beneath the sod.
- Test your soil and consider adding compost as organic material. It will dramatically increase the absorption of water.
- Follow the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense guidelines for landscaping: Limit the amount of turf you plant, don’t plant grass on steep slopes, don’t install ornamental water features.
