How To Conserve Water Around Your Home This Spring

How To Conserve Water Around Your Home This Spring

Spring is here. Temperatures are warming up. And water consumption is on the rise. It’s common for homeowners to begin using more water this time of year, but there are a few ways to cut back. Follow the tips below to keep water consumption to a minimum and keep some extra green in your wallet this season.

  1. Homeowners across the country are much more likely to notice leaks inside their home. But keep in mind that outdoor faucets, hoses and sprinklers can leak as well. As you do some landscaping in the upcoming weeks, be sure to check outdoor areas for leaks.

  2. Tending to your garden? We recommend adding a layer of organic mulch to the flower beds. This will help minimize weed growth and reduce competition for water.

  3. Did you know that more plants die from overwatering than underwatering? Keep this in mind the next time you think your plants need water. Create a small calendar to remind yourself of the last time you watered your plants.

  4. Cut back on dirty drinkware by designating one glass or refillable bottle each day. There’s no need to take a new cup every time you get thirsty.

  5. Notice a dry spot in your yard? It’s more efficient to water it by hand than to turn on the entire irrigation system. Use excess water from washing dishes instead of running the hose or sprinklers.
