11. Conserve That Garden Water!
In this episode, we're talking water conservation! I’m going to give you some of the best tips and practices I’ve found to either use less water, or stop losing so much of it to evaporation.
On average, Americans dump 48 gallons of water into our lawns and gardens daily, which is no small number. And the worst part about that is the EPA estimates that as much as 24 of those 48 gallons is actually lost to evaporation, meaning it’s not doing our plants much good, it’s costing us money, and, of course, it’s wasted water. The good news is, there are lots of ways to reduce water waste in the garden!
