Green Acres Instant Lawn Have Some Ideas For the Best Ways to Store and Use Rainwater For Your Garden
When water restrictions make it hard to keep your lawn as hydrated as you'd like, it's only natural to want to find an alternative solution. Storing rainwater can be a great way to make the most of what you've got, but it's not always the easiest task. Don't despair though, there are plenty of ways to store rainwater, and if you use your stored water sensibly, it should be easier for you to keep your turf looking green and healthy.
Why rely on stored rainwater?
Not only do water restrictions make it necessary to avoid using water for your garden, but rainwater is actually better for your plants and grass than tap water.
How to store rainwater
An outdoor water butt is one of the best ways to collect and store rainwater. By attaching a water butt to a suitable downpipe, you'll be able to catch and store all of the water that hits your roof.
How to best use rainwater
When watering your lawn or garden, be sure to use a sensible and easily controlled method, such as a watering can, a drip irrigation system or a hosepipe with a trigger. A trigger nozzle is a particularly good choice, as you can direct the water flow to the places it's most needed.
Connect your system to your water butt for the most efficient use of your precious water supply and get gardening.
