Conserving water in your yard can make your life easier and lower your utility costs. Some methods even allow you to save water for later use, such as cleaning, watering plants and washing vehicles. Saving water isn’t as complicated as many believe.  

Here are some of the best ways to save water in your yard. 

Add a Layer of Mulch

Adding a thick layer of mulch will help the soil retain its moisture. Wood chips, shredded bark and other organic mulches will add to the soil’s organic matter. Make sure that the mulch you are choosing is suitable for your yard. 

Invest in a Drip Irrigation System

A drip irrigation system can minimize wasted water in your yard. It slowly distributes water at the root level and only brings it to areas where it is needed. Another great thing about it is that it avoids water loss through evaporation and saves you on utility costs. A drip system is also great at preventing weed growth and fungal diseases. 

Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater harvesting usually involves collecting rainwater from a roof. The water that travels from the roof and into the gutters will be stored in a vessel, typically a rain barrel. Rainwater can also be harvested into cisterns to supply your home. This method will benefit both your savings and the environment. It can reduce storm water runoff and address drainage issues on your property. 

For rainwater harvesting to work, your gutters must be in good shape, meaning they shouldn’t have clogs. Keeping your gutters free from debris ensures good drainage and water flow. It’s also a good idea to schedule regular inspections, and if any issues arise, address them immediately.
