Save water in your garden during the summer months with a few water conservation tips from eHow.
One of the best ones:
"Reduce your lawn maintenance - mow higher and less often, don't rake up the clippings, and avoid overwatering. As a rule, lawns need only about 1 inch of water a week; test how much you're watering by collecting your sprinkler water in a can."
I do want to add one more to this very good list; always water early in the morning or evening; less water will evaporate then in the heat of the day. — Wendy Boswell
