Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:167 EcoTip: Watering lawns early in the morning when temperatures and winds are less likely to cause rapid evaporation gets more water to the root zone so that less water is needed.


 Additional Information:

If you do use your automatic sprinklers to water early or late it is important to check the system to be sure you don’t have a broken sprinkler head or other malfunction that will waste water. Tomorrow’s post will have information about another way to check your sprinkler system.
