It may seem to be a bit difficult to conserve water, especially during the summer season when the rain becomes a bit scarcer, but it is not as difficult as it seems. There are a few different things you can do to avoid using as much water and help to save the planet. Let’s take a look at the 4 best things you can do outside and around the house in order to save some water during the spring and summer.
While they are a bit of an initial investment, sprinklers can be extremely helpful regarding conserving water. One of the things that can be especially helpful regarding sprinkler systems is how they can be automated. While automation can have its advantages and disadvantages, it can help to limit the amount of water you are using over time.
Time of Watering
Being sure to water at specific times of the day can significantly help to decrease the amount of evaporation that occurs over the course of the day. By watering early in the morning, or at night, you have can allow for the water to really seep into the plants without evaporating ahead of time. This allows for nicer looking plants that are well fed and a better aesthetic for your home due to the look of the maintenance.
Collecting water may sound like a difficult task but keeping out a rain collection bucket is quite simple. This bucket can then be used to water the plants in your yard, without having to use any additional water from your well, etc.
Recycling water may seem like an odd concept, but if you think about the number of times that we throw a half-empty cup of water into the sink or put water bottles in the trash half full, it makes sense. Use this water to feed your plants indoor or outdoor, and it can be extremely beneficial in lowering the amount of water you use.
