Audubon of Florida contends that residents should go further and rethink how they landscape to reduce water use.

Instead of thirsty lawns, Audubon advocates landscaping with native Florida plants that can get by on less water.

Half of South Florida’s public drinking water supply ends up getting used for landscape watering. Smarter landscaping could save more water for drinking water supplies and wildlife habitat, according to Audubon.

“By modifying the way we design backyard landscapes and use water indoors, we can dramatically reduce water consumption while providing food, water and shelter for birds,” according to water conservation recommendations issued this month by Audubon of Florida.

South Florida remains under year-round watering restrictions, which limit most of Broward and Miami-Dade counties to twice-a-week watering and allow watering three times per week in most of Palm Beach County.

Relief for local water supplies could be coming soon. The summer rainy season typically starts in mid May or by early June.
