Be Green, Save Green
Water between 8 and 8, and you’re losing 50% to evaporation. Solution? Set your sprinklers to water at night.
Here in Boulder, our budget might be getting cut (we’re talking about closing a library branch, even, which mainly hurts children and poorer citizens), we think we’re green as all get out…but we still like to toss water, a supposedly precious resource, into the air over our parks every shiny hot day.
Want to save water, and some dollars and sense? Set your sprinklers to drip or spray at midnight or so, and the water will soak allllll niiiiight loooong. Your plants will thank you.
With thanks for the reminder to The Good Human. Photos below via my iPhone, taken in Columbia Cemetery behind my house. It was hot, and though the iPhone makes everything look puny, the sprinklers were evvvverywhere.
