Great Outdoors Month

Jun 19 2014

“America's conservation legacy is rooted not only in its forward-thinking leaders like Presidents Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt but also in all the Americans who did their part to safeguard a small slice of the land they love.” - From the proclamation signed by the President of the United States of America for “Great Outdoors Month.” June has been declared “Great Outdoors Month” and while the weather is beautiful, it is important to remember to do your part and conserve. Conservation, a word that means the act of preserving, guarding or protecting wise use. It can bring to mind many ways to play your part in conserving our resources, reduction in water usage and is a priority for many. Some of the top ways to conserve water when it comes to your outdoor living space are: • Water early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler. • Spread a layer of organic mulch around plants and trees to reduce evaporation and keep the soil cool. Organic mulch also improves the soil and prevents weeds. • Be a good neighbor, let a neighbor know if there is a broken pipe or leak on their property. • Water plants only when necessary. Many plants die due to over-watering, not lack of water. • Instead of using the spray feature on your nozzle, use a broom to clean areas that require removal of dirt, food spills and litter. • When watering hanging plants use ice cubes on top of the soil to give your plants a cool drink of water without overflow.
