Easy Tips to Conserve Water
Protecting and preserving our natural resources is a growing effort across the country. Here are some quick and easy ways you can help conserve water, not to mention lower your water bill!
Conserving Water Outdoors
- Catch and store rain water for lawn and garden use in rain barrels or rain catchers. This is fresh water that has less harsh chemicals and deposits, a great benefit for your plants and lawn, and even washing your car!
- Make sure your sprinklers are watering your plants, and not your driveway, sidewalk or street. Most sprinklers have adjustable settings.
- Mulch around your trees and vegetation will slow the water evaporation.
- Watering during cool times of the day, early morning or late night, for the best water retention.
