The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) annual Fix a Leak week might be coming to an end, but you don’t have to wait until next year to continue saving water!

There are more ways to prevent water waste than only protecting your pipes from bursting, breaking or busting. Try these Ewing products to conserve water all year round.

Drip Irrigation

Drip irrigation allows for low volume amounts of water to reach your plants right at the root, preventing overspray, runoff and evaporation and uses 20 to 50 percent less water than conventional pop-up sprinklers.

Easily convert conventional sprinklers into drip irrigation with Landscape Products Retro Drip Adapter.

Simply screw the retro drip adapter into a half-inch riser, and attach the hose swivel and drip tubing. If you have any unused sprinklers in the zone—ones you had a sprinkler on but are not putting an adapter on—you can close it off with a sprinkler shut-off cap.

Smart Controllers

Manage your irrigation system with smart, water efficient controllers that take the guesswork out of scheduling run times, which saves time, money and water!

Ewing’s variety of smart controllers include features that factor in weather patterns, rainfall probability, temperature forecast, zone specific calculations and more to avoid over watering and prevent water waste.

Soil Amendments

In order to get the most out of your soil, try Ewing’s variety of soil amendments that can help your soil retain water so your lawns remain healthy and strong.

Products like Holganix, an organic probiotic for your soil, keep lawns and plants healthy and strong even in times of drought because it helps build deeper root systems in the plant material that requires less frequent watering.

AquaSmart PRO, a polymer soil additive, absorbs water and keeps it in the roots longer to reduce stress on plants caused by water restrictions or drought.

Hardscapes and Pavers

If you want to take water savings to the next level, renovate grassy landscapes and backyards with pavers to create hardscape havens.

Installing pavers can eliminate watering needs altogether while creating beautiful outdoor environments that people will want to spend time in.

For more information about how you can get started with hardscapes and create more sustainable landscapes, stop by or contact your local Ewing branch.
