USGA Summary Points:Water use of trees and grasses followed the basic bell shaped curve of reference ET for the Las Vegas area but variation occurred on a species basis. On a basal canopy area basis all trees except Crepe Myrtle used less water than all 4 turfgrass species with greater differences occurring when the comparison was made with high water using tall fescue compared to low water using low fertility bermudagrass. Variation in ET on a monthly basis could be described for some trees based on morphological parameters and reference ET but for some species the correlation was not significant.
