A good way to prevent overwatering is to install rain or soil moisture sensors to override your automatic watering system when necessary. A rain sensor simply senses rainfall. Once a designated amount of water has been detected, it shuts down any regularly scheduled irrigation. Rain sensors are small, simple devices and are generally less expensive and easier to install and maintain than soil moisture sensors. Soil moisture sensors are more accurate than rain sensors because they can detect moisture at the level of the root system. They are more exact in measuring how much water your plants are receiving and thus offer greater water savings. However, they are somewhat complicated to install and manage.

While most people know that water boils at 100 °C (212 °F), this is at the normal conditions of sea level. The boiling point of water actually changes relative to the barometric pressure. For example, water boils at just 68 °C (154 °F) on the top of Mount Everest while water deep in the ocean near geothermal vents can remain in liquid form at temperatures much higher than 100 °C (212 °F).

Dishwashing is a relatively small part of your water footprint—less than 2% of indoor use—but there are always ways to conserve. Using a machine is actually more water efficient than hand washing, especially if you run full loads.

The winter is when you spend the least amount of time thinking of your lawn. Unless you live in an area that is relatively warm all year long, chances are you have put the lawn mower away and are ready for a few months of relaxation before you have to start the lawn maintenance routine again.

Should I water during a winter drought?

During periods of winter drought, people become rightfully concerned about their landscape plants and home foundations. During a winter drought, horticulturists encourage people to water trees, lawns and shrubs and to protect their foundations by using sprinklers and soaking hoses nearby.

Dowsing: Is It Fact or Fake?
Some call it “the gift.” Others refer to it as “twitching,” “doodlebugging,” or “water witching,” the practice of locating water underground using a forked stick. Sounds simple, but does it work?

The yards of so many American households are dry and brown. Installing a lawn sprinkler system at your Blaine or neighboring towns’ home is an awesome way to get your grass and plants the proper amount of water required to ensure green, healthy growth. A lawn sprinkler system as installed by Classic Lawnscape will see to it that water is distributed evenly across your lawn. Not only that, but you can set automatic watering to unfold at specific times.

Did you know that 70% of the earth is covered in water?
Did you know that from all the water on earth, only 1% is safe for drinking?
Did you know that 67% of all water usage is used outdoors? That means all the indoor water usage like showers, sinks, toilets etc. would have to more than double in order to equal the outdoor water use.
