A lush green lawn & colorful flower beds can make or break the curb appeal value of your home, but keeping all of the plant life watered could break the bank with a high water bill. Follow a few simple rules for watering your lawn and landscaping and you can have the best of both worlds: a gorgeous lawn and a healthy bank account.
Setting Your Automatic Sprinkler Controller
Automatic sprinklers can be a homeowner’s best friend if the timer is set properly. The controller with a rain sensor takes into account local weather so you don’t have sprinklers running while it’s raining.
Sprinkler Head Placement
Allow a sprinkler professional from a company like ATZ Irrigation, Inc to install your system so that the setup is best optimized for both watering and money saving. You don’t want sprinkler heads saturating nearby sidewalks, driveways or pathways that don’t include any plant life.
Save more water
It might seem like using a hose would save more water than using the sprinklers, but hoses put out a steady, hard stream of water. This is fine if you just make a quick pass across your flowers and call it a day. However, using the hose for the entire yard can use up more water than you realize and having the hose already out can inspire you to take on other tasks like rinsing off the patio or exterior windows.
Follow these simple rules for lawn care to keep your yard looking healthy without costing you too much monthly green.
