Several years ago I worked with a local team to have a rain water cistern called a RainXchange System installed in my front lawn by Aquascape, Inc. (above) – the result has been absolutely fabulous! I have had many years of enjoyment with a beautiful fountain that runs summer and winter. In my original story about the installation I discussed the importance of water conservation and how the Aquascape pond guys are doing great things to help the world better understand water conservation.

5 Ways To Conserve Water

Using rain water in the garden is a great way to conserve water on your property because it keeps water out of the storm water systems. Saving water also means saving money. Other ways to conserve water on your property include –

  1. Water only before 10 AM or after 6 PM whenever possible.
  2. Mulch well to help keep roots cool with less demand for water.
  3. Utilize soil amendments such as natural worm castings or compost to help hold water in your gardens root systems.
  4. Use rain barrels or have a rain water cistern installed to help conserve rain water and money.
  5. Water at the base of your plant, not the leaves. This will help conserve water and prevent fungal problems on your plants.

My Pond Stars rainwater cistern and fountain has been an amazing source for the wildlife in my front yard and truly adds an awesome green-n-healthy touch to the front garden year round. It runs in winter (photo right above) as well as summer (below) and has been a joy for the entire neighborhood. Good Luck with the premiere pond guys, I can’t wait to see the show.
