Would you rather have a brown yard or a high water bill? Here’s the good news: you don’t have to choose! Believe it or not, it is possible to have a green yard and conserve water during the summer! Have your yard looking its best without wasting water with these tips from D&D!
Be Mindful Of Automatic Sprinklers
A blessing and a curse sometimes, automatic sprinklers can be your best friend, but also your worst enemy. You love how well the sprinklers keep your yard looking lush and green, but hate how much water this wastes and not to mention..money.
Be sure to water in the morning ONLY! The sun during the afternoon will cause the water to evaporate before your yard and garden can even soak it up! This tip alone will help you conserve water in a hurry!
Collect Rain Water
Try this: before a rain storm, set out one or two large empty buckets or trash bins to collect the rain water. Later, use this water to water your plants or garden! You can also install a rain barrel to collect the runoff water from the gutters! It doesn’t get any more natural than that!
Lock In Moisture With Mulch
Mulch holds in more moisture than regular dirt. Add mulch around your plants and trees to lock in moisture. Mulch comes in different colors, so it can add another visual element to your yard as well!
