4 Ways You Can Avoid Water Wastage in Your Lawn

Updated: Dec 26, 2018

Water is a valuable natural resource, yet every household consumes around 80 to 100 gallons of water per day, and most of it goes on their lawn. While your lawn needs to be watered on a regular basis to keep plants healthy, it doesn’t mean you can’t reduce water wastage.

Here are a few effective ways how you can water your lawn without wasting the precious natural resource:

Water at the Right Time

Overwatering your lawn not only wastes water, but it also leads to damage to the grass. You should water your lawn only when it’s dry. If it seems too damp to touch, you don't need to water it again for now.

Moreover, you should consider watering the soil in the evening. It’ll reduce evaporation and the soil can get plenty of water to stay healthy.

Collect Rainwater

If you live in an area where rainfall occurs quite often, then you can make the most of this situation by using rainwater to hydrate your lawn. During the rainy season, you may need not to water your lawn, but you can collect it in tubs or drums.

Keep the stored rainwater covered to keep wild animals and insects at bay. Rainwater is beneficial for plants and supports the growth of grass in your lawn.

Install a Drip Irrigation System

You should consider investing in a drip irrigation system. It slowly waters your lawn so that the moisture seeps into the soil and reduces water waste by up to 50%.

Use Watering Cans

Using watering cans is also an effective way to reduce water wastage in your lawn. While it’s time-consuming and labor-intensive, it’ll help you preserve water.

With the help of the aforementioned tips, you can get rid of a guilty conscience and control water wastage. At Top Blades LLC, we can take good care of your lawn in an effective way.
