Conserving Water In and Around the Home


As California drought conditions continue and a solution seems out of sight, it becomes increasingly important that homeowners make efforts towards conserving water. There are a variety of landscaping ideas to conserve water that will not only make your outdoors looking beautiful, but will also contribute to the overall greater good of our beautiful state and planet. We highly recommend trying out these water conservation ideas for your landscaping and gardening:


§  Running sprinklers can be detrimental to California drought conditions, which is why it may be time to make the switch to hand watering, overhead watering or drip irrigation. These methods are more effective in both managing water use and providing your greenery with proper hydration.

§  Utilizing big potted plants in your gardening can not only be aesthetically pleasing, but it can also be more water efficient with less water run-off. Make a day of creating your own arrangements in half wine barrel planters, as these beautiful gardening displays can make for a gorgeous and water efficient backyard.

§  When you have a produce garden, you are not only eating fresher food, but you are also eliminating the cost of transportation, storage and maintenance of packaged foods and items sold in grocery stores. Having your family set-up an edible garden in your backyard or on your patio with all of your favorite fruits and veggies is a great way to start enjoying fresh produce as well as introducing your children “home farming.” By assigning each of your children a portion of the garden to water and care for, they can start learning the importance of taking care of something and the joy of growing their own food.
