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.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
