Four Tips to Water Saving in Your Garden

Water saving options allow you to reduce your water bill by reducing the amount of water you use. Gardeners often need to use more water than most individuals, as watering plants is necessary to ensure their survival. Fortunately, you can keep your plants healthy and beautiful while also conserving water.

Save Your Rainwater

Place empty barrels, tubs or other large containers in inconspicuous places to catch rainwater each time it rains. Use the excess rainwater, rather than your garden hose, to water your garden.

Choose the Right Plants

Some plants need more water to survive than others. Choosing hardy plants that don’t need to be watered as often helps you conserve water in your garden.

Install a Home Irrigation System

Home irrigation systems are available for gardeners who are serious about conserving water but want to maintain a thriving garden. Trickle and drip irrigation systems deliver small amounts of water underground. The water is then absorbed by your plants’ roots. Not only are underground irrigation systems more efficient than simply watering your garden with a hose, but they also use far less water to achieve the same result.

Add Mulch to Your Garden

Mulch prevents moisture within the soil from evaporating as quickly as it would on bare ground. This helps your plants get the most out of every watering routine and reduces the frequency with which you need to water your garden.
