Eco Friendly lawn care - Using less water

A big part of any cities drinking water scarily enough used for landscaping. The best way to conserve water is to reduce the amount of landscaping required to maintain your yard.

 

  • Xeriscape. Given how labor and water intensive maintaining a lawn can be, why not opt for a yard that's grass free? Some alternative ground covers that require little mowing or watering include Yarrow, Alyssum, Thyme, and Sweet Woodruff. Before planting, check with a local nursery to make sure the option you choose can tolerate your local climate conditions.
  • Water deeply but infrequently. Grasses do best when the whole root zone is wetted, and then dries out between waterings. Avoid frequent shallow watering that causes poor root development. Overwatering also promotes lawn disease. Water in the early morning, when temperatures are cooler, to minimize evaporation.
  • Check your sprinkler system regularly and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.
  • Collect and use rainwater for watering your garden with jojo tank or direct downspouts or gutters toward shrubs or trees.
  • Install a drip irrigation system around your trees and shrubs to water more efficiently.

Allow yourself an indulgent pampering while you unwind in the tranquil setting that is Leopard Mountain Lodge.
