Water Conservation - Don't Let it Run!

Everyone wants to help conserve valuable resources.  And WATER is the most valuable one there is.  We can't live without it.  Do your part by fixing leaky faucets, taking shorter showers, only washing full loads of laundry, and watering your lawn and garden with good sense. 

When watering your lawn, turn the timer off on your sprinkler and assess if your lawn really needs to be watered.  A good way to see if your lawn needs watering is to step on the grass.  If it springs back up when you move, it doesn't need water.  If it stays flat, the lawn is ready for watering.  When watering the lawn, soak it long enough for the moisture to saturate down to the roots where it will do the most good.  A light sprinkling can evaporate quickly and tends to encourage shallow root systems, which requires more water to keep it green and more money out of your pocket.
