Welcome to Landscape Watering by the Numbers—a Guide for the Arizona Desert. This guide is designed for conditions in the Phoenix metro area, and should also work well for other low desert regions of Arizona. If you live in other regions, contact your local water conservation department for assistance. Tell them you’d like to know more about how you can conserve water in your lawn and landscape.

There are a number of ways to save water in your landscape, and there are some very good reasons to do so. Over half of the water we use at home is used outdoors, which makes watering efficiently one of the best and easiest ways to save water. Proper watering will also keep your landscape plants healthy and beautiful throughout the year.

Hard copies of Landscape Watering by the Numbers can be found at most landscape nurseries or by contacting a Water – Use It Wisely Water Provider.
