As we start to garden and plant, remember that some towns and cities have already imposed watering bans. Every ban varies so check what is allowed, what isn’t and when you can water. And remember - be water wise. That means let nature take care of your lawn, the number one water hog. As the Taoist proverb tells us, “No one can see their reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.” And if the water stops, yikes, we’re in trouble.
Check out these past blogs during the dry season on how to be water wise as you garden. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2010/07/toughen-your-landscape.html
And don’t forget to use black plastic for certain veggies to keep the weeds down but to also help conserve on water.
