Don't Water Unless You Have To

A simple way to determine when your lawn needs water: Walk on the grass. If the blades spring back, hold off on watering. If you see your footprints, switch on the sprinklers—unless rain is in the forecast. Not a cloud in the sky? Hose down the garden in the early morning or at dusk to avoid losing water to evaporation caused by the hot sun.
