SIMPLE THINGS WE CAN DO TO REDUCE OUR USE
Water less. Lawns will survive with two waterings per week in northern Utah. It’s okay if the grass yellows. It will recover when conditions improve. Follow the Extreme Drought Watering Guide.
Raise your mower. Set your blades to 3 to 4 inches. Taller grass means deeper roots and also shades the soil, reducing evaporation.
