It is no surprise to many of us that our water bills tend to soar in the spring and summer months. After all, we all love to have beautiful green lawns and gardens, but to get them there we need to water! At Nature’s Turf we believe that you can have your cake and eat it too. You CAN have that incredible lawn that is the envy of all of your neighbors and you don’t have to break the bank to get it. The following is a list of tips from your McDonough lawn care experts to conserve water and keep your lawn and your garden healthy:
Don’t cut your grass too short. Keep your grass at around two inches long. Long grass provides more shade to the roots, which will help to hold the moisture in the soil much more efficiently.
Water more thoroughly, but less often. This will allow the roots to grow deeper, but will also help to prepare your lawn to stay healthier in a drought. You should water deeply about once every three days.
Place organic mulch in your garden. The mulch will hold the moisture in for a longer duration.
When you wash veggies and fruits, save the water in a bowl. You can use that water for your garden on days when rain is scarce.
These are just a few of the many ways in which you can ensure that your lawn and your garden stay healthy and green without having to break the bank. When you turn to Nature’s Turf for all of your lawn care needs, you can rest assured that our experience and expertise will be used to benefit you and your lawn. Contact us today for more information.
