For all those gardeners who tend to garden around Kansas City, taking the necessary steps to conserve water should be an important part of your daily routine.
If you are unaware of the ways you can effectively prevent excessive water waste, you can follow the handful of simple tips below.
- Regularly pulling out unwanted weeds growing near your plants is important for water conservation. If you let the weeds flourish, they will consume a large part of the water you supply to your plants, which will, in turn, demand more watering.
- Water your plants when the sunlight is weak to avoid evaporation. Times before 8:00 am or after 4:00 pm are ideal for watering your plants.
- Get rid of all your sprinklers if they waste too much water. Use seep hoses instead.
- Make a homemade funnel by cutting off the base of a plastic bottle. Bury this artifice next to the plant, and water it through the funnel to ensure that the water reaches the plant.
If you employ the above tips regularly, your garden will not only flourish but will also be much greener and environment-friendly. Consult the experts at our 1,000-acre garden center in Kansas City, Rosehill Gardens, for expert tips on making your garden flourish with a green thumb.
