20 Apr Earth Day Conservation Tips
Every year on April 22nd, the world comes together to celebrate and improve our amazing planet. Without Earth, none of us would be here, and we think it’s time to start acting like it.
As a company that works outdoors daily with expert technicians specializing in irrigation, lawn care, outdoor lighting, and so much more, we have seen our fair share of the beauty that Mother Nature and Earth have given us. Because of that, we’re here to spread a few tips on preserving our planet and keeping it healthy.
When it comes to conserving water, we have a few tips that any homeowner can do to help save water and protect our Earth.
- Instead of using a hose to clean up debris, get a broom specifically for the outdoors. Use this for leaves, dirt, and other debris instead of wasting water.
- Always use the automatic shut-off nozzle on your hose! If you don’t have one, get one ASAP.
- When washing your car, use a bucket of water and soap instead of your hose.
- Invest in a proper irrigation system.
This last tip is so crucial that we will expand on it. Our automated sprinkler system will run at ideal times; generally, this is around 6 am when temperatures are cool, and there is minimal evaporation. This allows your grass to better absorb the little water used. In addition, when we set up your system, we’ll ensure that the sprinklers only reach your yard and garden; we will never waste by watering your sidewalk or the road.
A proper irrigation system can not only conserve water but can also save you money. If you want to learn about even more benefits of an irrigation system, read our blog here. While there are many advantages, our favorite has to be that we are doing our part to conserve water and help our planet. We only have one world to live in, and we want it to be healthy.
We should all strive to leave this earth better than we found it for our children, grandchildren, and more. Small daily steps can go a long way in this. So, if you’re looking for the best way to celebrate Earth Day this year, invest in a proper irrigation system! Reach out to us with any questions you may have or for a free consultation. We’d love to work together to help our planet on Earth Day and beyond.
