Water Conservation: Part Two

Welcome to the second part of our series in water conservation.

Next up, Landscaping.  We have beautiful grounds and Courtyards to enjoy.

Since many of our plants are mature with deep roots they can handle receiving less water.

Thick layers of mulch have been added to the gardens, to hold in moisture, and use less water.

Where possible, some plants have been fitted with their own drip irrigation at the base so that no water is wasted.

The length and frequency of watering has been reduced as well.

We hope you enjoyed peeking at our Courtyards and hearing about what we are doing to conserve water.

Do you have any ideas to share with us to possibly use in our Courtyards & Gardens?

Please share them in the comments below.
