Create a Water Efficient Garden

Here are ways to create a water efficient garden:

  • Assess your existing landscape first to ensure proper landscaping design and planning. For example, using ground covers or shade gardening.
  • Select native drought-tolerant plants - Certain drought-tolerant species can produce the vibrant colours and beautiful landscapes for water efficiency without compromising style.  
  • Use a Rain Barrel - Rain captured in a rain barrel is an excellent source of water for your lawn and garden, and can save you money by reducing how much treated water you use from the municipal water system.
