Water is a valuable resource and here at Gardening on a Dime, Trish and I are always thinking of ways to minimize our water usage and recover rainwater. Well I came across this cartoon recently. Not only is it humorous, but it brings up a good tip. Is your sprinkler system leaking underground?
Many times we see that neighbor or business that has the thirty foot stream shooting up in the air, the result of a broken sprinkler head. Repairing the head is easy. However, how many folks actually walk the paths of their system looking for leaks. Please check your systems regularly for low pressure in certain zones or pools of water sitting on the ground. And while you’re at it, look for areas where things seem a little extra healthy and green.
Most of us need water to enjoy our beautiful gardens. Let’s use it as efficiently as possible. It will makes the rabbits a whole lot happier!
