A lot of people in the city don’t realize it when they move to the countryside, or even to the outskirts of areas where droughts are common, that saving water is a pretty big issue. A drought might not lead to people not having any drinking water, since that issue has been given a lot of attention in recent years, so the number of people without access to clean drinking water has diminished a lot. However, for other activities, you will have to learn to save water, if you want to use it to water your lawn for example.
The first tip is to cut down on the use of water for luxury items such as fountains, pools and Jacuzzi hot tubs. Cleaning and cycling the water is best instead of refilling your Jacuzzi on a regular basis, and the same goes for other uses as well. You can save water by using an organic liquid fertilizer on your lawn as well so that you don’t have to use so much water.
Of course, when you can’t recycle your water, you will need to actually save, and this is the case for using a washing machine and even cleaning yourself. Consider taking quicker showers, avoiding long washer cycles and even gauging the water you use more carefully by switching to taking baths instead of showers. Although it might be uncomfortable at first, these methods are extremely practical, and they can minimize your use of water a great deal, so you will have all the water you need for watering your lawn and tending to the garden as well.
