Statistics show that about 50 percent of outdoor water in residential areas is wasted, and remember, you are paying for that water. If you love gardening and you have a huge garden, you can conserve water in many ways. Here are three of them.
1. Get a water sprinkler.
Aside from ensuring that your plants and lawn get just the right amount of water, a sprinkler system makes sure that they are getting it at the right time even if you are not at home. While there are upfront fees you need to settle for getting sprinkler installation services in Utah, the pros outweigh the cons. Not only does it offer you an efficient system of watering but it also saves you time and effort.
2. Know the best time to water your plants and lawn.
A well-kept lawn can increase the market value of your residential property, so having your plants watered regularly is crucial should you decide to sell your house in the near future. Knowing when is the best time to water is one key to conserve water without risking the life of your plants. As a general rule, check the soil first about a “spade-deep down.” If the soil is still damp, you can water later. If it is dry, it is time for some shower.
3. Collect rainwater and reuse it.
You can use rainwater not just to water your garden but also to clean your yard, car, bicycle, and even outdoor furniture. Invest in a rainwater collection system so you can save on water costs in a big way.
There are many more ways to conserve water in your home but start with these three, especially if you have a big garden to take care of. They are easy enough to do, and you can start right away.
