Caruso's Green Tip of the Day ~ Use Less Water

Real Estate Agent with Surterre Properties


With summer’s warm temperatures in full swing, it becomes even more important to be mindful not to waste water – as the average MNWD customer uses 70% more water during the spring & summer months. Here's an easy way to use water more efficiently.

Do you know how often your irrigation controller is set to water your landscaping? Could your sprinklers be running in the middle of the night or while you're at work & you not know it?

Did you know most lawns only need a maximum of eight minutes of watering four days per week to stay green this time of year. Make sure you also verify that the back-up battery is working so your controller doesn't default during the next power outage. And now you know!

Michael, those are great tips, so is just setting the sprinklers to water only at night, when there is less heat and less evaporation.

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving your comments. Conservation is very important. I put artificial grass in my front yard.  It looks real and my lawn is always green. Since, I only have to water the plants and flowers, my water bill has dropped and my front lawn is green year round and the envy of my neighbors!  Haha
