Cypress Lawn and Landscaping is all about saving the precious resources of water and the green resource in your wallet. In a climate that features more unforgiving summers than most, we like to consider ourselves professionals when it comes to designing an eco and wallet-friendly approach to watering your yard. Below are two tips for this spring. You may have heard of rain barrels and irrigation installation, but you’ve yet to realize their full potential.
Irrigation Installation: Leave it to the professionals
There’s a reason why you hire a licensed professional for irrigation installation. When our contractors come to asses your backyard, we’re not simply looking for space to dig holes and slap in sprinklers. We’ve all undergone continued education that teaches us how to properly engineer and zone a system based on backflow, hydraulics and other elements of design. With careful planning, we’ll conserve water and fix any hidden drainage issues.
Sustainable landscaping: Save that rain!
Rain gutters simply shoot useful water into the street and down the drain. Capitalize on these awesome rain showers and get yourself a rain barrel to water your lawn and flowers on those rain-skimped weeks. The best part? Get the whole family involved and personalize it by painting prints of family hand or paw prints, simply anything that gets crafty and creative. Place the barrel under a downspout at your home, and you might have to remove the gutter’s screws and straps in order to get the stream to go directly into the container. In Houston there are a few places to round them up around:
- Edible Earth Resources
- BayTec Containers
Can’t get creative? Here’s some ‘Insta-spiration’ from artsy rain barrel users across Instagram.
