Install a low-flow showerhead that limits the flow from the shower to less than three gallons per minute. Take short showers and install a cutoff valve, or turn the water off while washing and back on again only to rinse. Take a shower instead of taking a bath. Showers with low-flow showerheads often use less water than taking a bath. Reduce the level of the water being used in a bathtub by one or two inches if a shower is not available.
Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants. Mulch will slow evaporation of moisture while discouraging weed growth.
Soft, wet areas around your sprinkler heads, especially when the system has not been in use, could indicate a leak. Contact your licensed landscape professional to determine if repairs are needed.
