Even though we’ve had some rain California is still experiencing a severe drought. We are fortunate in the EBMUD area that we will have to conserve 10% of our use. Many other areas have much higher cutbacks. However we still have to garden for water efficiency. See the article below “Drought Tree Care” for watering your trees tips.
USE IT, DON”T LOSE IT!
Millions of gallons of fresh, clean water are lost every day. It flows down the drain when we’re taking long showers, brushing our teeth or doing dishes. Over-watering our lawns results in runoff that doesn’t benefit the lawn. Leaking irrigation systems and faucet valves waste water. Start paying attention to where your water is going and you can enjoy a beautiful garden this year and still conserve the water we need.
