Lawns are water guzzlers, requiring about an inch of water per week during the growing season to remain green and vibrant. Many arid regions of the nation don’t get anywhere near that much average rainfall and many municipalities have restrictions on how much you can apply.
To conserve water and get the best results for your lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs, remember these tips.
- Water in the morning so that the surface of the lawn and garden dries off during the day.
- Water deeply and infrequently so the roots of the plants learn to grow down into the soil to get the water they need.
- Use a timer, if you’re in a rush in the morning, to automatically shut-off the sprinkler.
Use organic fertilizers and soil amendments such as leaf mulch or compost increase soil’s water-holding capacity, allowing the lawn and garden to stay greener longer. Call NDI Plumbing Inc today 745-8791 for any questions or help with your sprinkler system!!!
