A Guide to Water-Wise Gardening in Calgary



The City of Calgary encourages Calgarians to be water-wise and create a YardSmart yard this spring to help maintain their yards and gardens. YardSmart offers online resources and practical advice to help Calgarians establish and maintain yards and gardens well-suited to Calgary's growing conditions and use less water. Tips include:


  • Watering early in the mornings or later in the evenings.

  • Avoid watering when it has rained or if there is rain in the forecast.

  • Only giving plants the water they need.

  • Mowing less often.

  • Replacing lawns with garden features that use less water and help absorb rainwater.

  • Rich soil and mulch should be added to reduce evaporation.


YardSmart plant lists are also available for those wanting to expand their yards this year. Visit calgary.ca/yardsmart for more information on how you can do your part to conserve water in your yard and garden. Together we can make every drop count.
