It takes a lot of water to keep your lawn and garden growing. Today we’ll talk about a few strategies to reduce your reliance on a traditional sources of water.
1. Install an automatic rain shutoff.
This device can be installed on your irrigation system controller to protect your lawn from receiving too much water. When a specified amount of rain has fallen over a given time, the device shuts off the system, saving you water.
2. Add mulch for your garden.
While not mandatory in your garden, adding mulch has its benefits, especially when it comes to conserving water. Apart from preventing weeds from growing, it also provides a layer of insulation to help reduce the need for watering.
3. Consider a drip irrigation system.
This system encourages efficient watering for your yard and garden. Through low-pressure emission, water drips in slowly at the roots when needed. It helps prevent water loss through evaporation, allowing you to save money.
4. Harvest rainwater.
In Minnesota, harvesting rainwater is legal and even encouraged. It is an innovative way to collect and store lots of rainwater for later use. For this, you need to invest in water-saving devices like rain barrels to store rainwater. You should also perform gutter cleaning to ensure water runoff funneling into downspouts and containers or vessels is clean.
