It’s Summer! Check Out Some Suggested Outside Projects & Water/Energy Saving Tips!

Before Fall takes hold, it’s a good time to do certain outside projects such as:

* Exterior painting (while it’s warm and dry)
* Preparation for Harvest Season (if you’re growing fruits and vegetables)
* Use harvested rainwater to augment or replace your city water
* Continue weeding routines
* Cut and hang to dry any flowers you’ve been growing for dried arrangements or wreathes
o Such as: Nigella (Love in a mist), Achilla (Yarrow), Roses, Hydrangeas, Limonium (Statice), Gypsophila (Baby’s Breath)

Think about saving water and energy this summer with water conservation and solar power projects.

* Practice water conservation in dry areas
o Early AM or late PM landscaping watering
o Pee twice / Flush once
o Turn OFF water while brushing teeth
o Shorter showers
o Let the car wash go an extra week
* Solar power projects
o Dry wet clothes on a clothesline
o Dehydrate fruits, beans, nuts, herbs in the sun
