July is traditionally the month of a peak demand for water for lawns, gardens, and landscapes. The Irrigation Association named July as Smart Irrigation Month to increase public awareness about simple practices and innovative technologies homeowners, businesses, and property managers can use to save money on utility bills and protect their community’s water supply for generations to come.

Homeowners typically over water lawns and landscapes by up to 30 percent! To avoid water waste, select and plant carefully (choose native plants), water wisely, and maintain and/or upgrade automated irrigation systems. You’ll save money, save water, and see better results!
