Garden Week - Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Green Grass or Bust - Garden Week
Does your green thumbing require lots of water? Give your wallet a lift: Save cash and H2O by watering your garden in the early morning. Not quite a free ride, but still pretty sweet.
- More H2O to keep hydrated on road trips. Up to 30% of water used for midday watering will evaporate, while nighttime watering causes your garden to stay damp longer, sometimes leading to mold.
- Not (hitch)hiking up your water bill. About 50%-70% of the water a typical American household uses goes to the lawn and garden.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: Since making Colorado my home, I have recognized the incredible benefits of planting a climate-specific garden. Here on the front range of the Rocky Mountains we live in a semi-arid climate, making pristine groomed lawns an entirely wasteful and ridiculous endeavor. Instead, planting native flowers, grasses and trees (which have evolved to require less water and less attention from you) not only saves our precious resources, but also these plants will have a greater chance of surviving and thriving- making your garden worthy of a little showing off. ~Jen
