Water-Smart Tips For Your Lawn
Don’t let your yard control your water bill! When carefully planned, you can create a beautiful landscape that’s also pleasing to your wallet and the environment. Here are a few ways to garden more efficiently.
Choose native plants. When planning your landscape design, you should take into consideration your local climate as well ask your soil conditions. Plants native to your area will require minimal water and are more resistant to pests and disease.
Group plants accordingly. When buying plants and shrubs for your garden, it’s important to plan ahead. For instance, sunflowers may look nice, but they need to grow at least 12 inches away from any other plant. Consider grouping plants by the amount of water they need their sun or shade requirements, and the preferred soil conditions.
Water wisely. Instead of being absorbed by the plant, half of the water we apply to our lawns and gardens ends up lost. To keep your plants healthy, you should only water when is needed, and water deeply to reach their roots.
Provide regular maintenance. Whether you want to ‘DIY’ or hire a professional, a water-smart yard still requires regular pruning, weeding, and pest control.
