Water Conservation

Photo 5

You might be wondering "Why would I need to conserve water when we get so much rain and snow each year, and I could always just turn on the sprinkler system or drag out the hose?" While we do experience flooding rains that may fill our reservoirs, our soils can’t hold the remainder and lost rainwater runs off into the storm drains. The point here is that in a sustainable landscape you would have a variety of plants that could continue though wet times and dry, plus you would have adopted water capturing and conserving practices, treating water as a precious commodity to your garden, lawn, and landscape.
