Conserve Water Green Building Tips by: Kenya McCullum
All of your green landscaping won’t do much good if you’re watering the sidewalks and streets surrounding your home whenever you feed your plants. Choosing efficient irrigation controllers will ensure that your yard — and only your yard — gets the appropriate amount of water. It’s as easy as a quick check to make sure all (or most) of the water is aimed at the green part of the landscape and adjusting any sprinkler heads that aren’t. Also, look for a system that has a sprinkler timer, irrigation clock and a programming mode that you can customize.
