HR WET Water Wise Landscaping & Watering Guide pdf

The Hampton Roads Water Efficiency Team (HR WET) along with partners in Georgia, North Carolina and the metro Washington, D.C. area, introduces a new Water Wise Landscaping and Watering Guide.  The full-color, 22-page publication is free of charge and promotes wise water use in the yard.  Topics include proper planning and design, use of native and drought tolerant plants, efficient irrigation, soil improvement, mulch and appropriate maintenance.  Hampton Roads’ residents may be interested to know that during dry periods, landscape watering can use up to three-quarters of total household water usage.  This publication provides a sensible approach to conserve water while enjoying an attractive yard.  The Water Wise Landscaping and Watering Guide can also be found on the HR WET website.  Free copies are also available at your local water utility customer service offices; the HR WET Trailer at various events throughout the year; and, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission office.
