If you have a gardener, make sure her or she is adjusting your watering schedule according to the plant’s water needs as the weather changes. At the water conservation site, the “Watering % Adjust” button gives you the percentage to which to set your irrigation system’s water budget or seasonal adjustment. Make sure your contract requires that your gardener check your irrigation monthly for leaks and runoff.
