Outdoor Water Usage
Studies show that up to 50% of the water we use outdoors in hopes of improving our landscapes is not needed.
We see our water bills skyrocket in the summer. We know it's because our plants and grass need water, but are we even watering the right amount?
We are also told to water in the late evening, but most of us are asleep so we may not be aware of what our sprinkler system is doing.
Well guess what? With some tune ups and good direction you can grow healthier plants all while saving money on your water bill and doing your part to prevent subsidence. It's a win win.
Looking to hire someone to fix your sprinkler system? Make sure you hire a Texas Licensed Irrigator. Search for one here.
