Conserving Water

Florida's water shortages aren't going away any time soon, but our yards and gardens still need water to survive. How can we conserve water while maintaining our landscapes? It's easier than you think, and no, it doesn't mean you have to replace your lawn with gravel and cacti. Choosing the right plants for the right place, water deeply and less often, collect extra water with a rain barrel—these are just a few of the ways you can conserve water.
