The hot Kansas City weather over the summer months can cause your lawn to suffer if it is not given adequate water; however, at the same time, it is easy to overwater and cause your water bill go into the red if do not use the correct techniques. Follow these water conservation tips to keep your lawn green but energy costs low.
- Choose the right sprinkler system. A big water and money waster is a sprinkler head that sprays too high or creates mist. In addition, water should not be leaking out of the sprinkler head after the watering cycle is over. Change to a newer model that offers pressure regulation and features a check valve in the design.
- Ensure your sprinkler is using efficient nozzles. Not only can you reduce water use by 30 percent, you may also qualify for a rebate from your water provider.
- Keep your system in good condition. Make regular repairs on your sprinkler system to avoid cracks, leaks, and breakages in the valves.
