4 Ways to Save Water Outdoors This Summer Cumming, GA
Sprinklers watering lawn.

With summer in full swing, you’ve likely noticed a spike in your residential water use. Car washing, lawn irrigation, swimming pools and garden watering are just a few of the ways we use extra amounts of water during the summer months. Whether you are trying to cool off or keep your grass nourished, water can be one of the best ways to beat the outdoor heat.

Despite the increased need for water during the summer months, there are still things you can do to conserve water outside your home and save on your water bill!

#1 Raise your lawnmower height. By setting your mower blades to their maximum height, you can let your grass stay a little taller, which shades the soil and minimizes evaporation.

#2 Stay low with watering. You’d be surprised at how much water evaporates in the air before it ever reaches your turf during hot weather. To avoid this, water low to the ground and don’t allow your sprinklers and hoses to project high arches of water in the air.

#3 Be smart with when you water. To nourish your landscape with the least amount of water in the summer, water in the morning and not during the heat of the day. The heat of the sun not only makes water evaporate faster, but it will also prevent water droplets from acting like the sun’s magnifying glass and scorching your plant’s leaves.

#4 Fix outdoor plumbing leaks. It’s easier to convince homeowners to address leaks inside the house versus outside. However, outdoor water leaks can be just as costly. One of the most common leaks outside the home are hoses. Make sure your hose is firmly connected to the faucet. You’ll also want to inspect your irrigation system (sprinkler heads) on a routine basis for signs of leakage.

At Pannone’s Landscaping & Lawn Pros, we value the importance of helping customers keep a healthy summer lawn while also conserving water and saving on utility bills at the same time. For more water conservation tips, call our Cumming landscape team.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
