It's warming up and spring is about to do it's thing.  But you might want to think before you flood your yard.

The drought didn't end with summer and was not sated by recent snow.  But with the warm weather we've been having you might be ready to start watering the lawn.  It's important to conserve water when you water your yard.  One helpful tip is to lay out a watering pan to help gauge how much water you've put on your lawn.

Another way to help conserve water is to practice xeriscaping, which is landscaping while using a minimal amount of water.
