We all want to save money and help the environment. Why not accomplish both? By conserving water this summer, you can save money and reduce your impact on the environment. Even in this recent humid and hot water, it is possible to do this and Weed Pro has the top five tips for conserving water.
Adjust your mower- By changing your lawn mower to cut grass to about 1.5 to 2 inches, you can conserve water. Taller grasses shade roots and holds moisture better to give you that luscious, green look.
Aerating is Key- Aerating your lawn is important to conserve water. By creating small holes, six inches from each other, will allow water to run directly to the roots and not run off the surface.
Water Infrequently- To get a great summer lawn, it is better to water deeply and infrequently. In fact, for summer lawns, you should only water your lawn once every three days, and all other times, once every five days.
Layer with Clippings- Putting lawn clippings on your grass cools the ground and holds in moisture.
Get it Done by the Professionals- Spend money now to save money later. By hiring a professional to install your irrigation system, you will insure it is working efficiently and properly.
