Mulch Coupons Will Help You Save Water & Money: Watch For Misting Sprinklers
We have another water-saving coupon offer available, this one called "Mulch, Mulch, Mulch"
This gives discounts of between 5 and 10 percent on purchases of mulch from seven local landscape companies.
Mulch is one of the easiest and most-effective ways to save water in your landscaping, it will also reduce weed growth. Read more about mulch in our Mulch 101 brochure.
Our "Smart Wash Car Wash" program has three more local car washes signed up.
That brings the total to 11 local car washes that recycle water, and give you a discount ranging from $1 to more than $7.
If your sprinklers cause excessive misting, there is a good chance your water pressure is too high. This wastes water, and plants don't get the water they need. There are several ways to correct the problem.
If the entire sprinkler system has high pressure, a single pressure regulator can fix the problem.
Alternatively, pressure-regulating sprinkler heads or pressure-compensating nozzles will remedy the problem for each individual sprinkler.
Talk to the folks at your local hardware store about pressure regulators, pressure-regulating sprinkler heads or pressure-compensating nozzles. In many cases, you can add pressure control discs to your existing nozzles.
