How To Use Less Water On Your Yard - Howcast Video

The team at Howcast makes some pretty killer videos. This is today's video of the day that talks about how to use less water on your yard.

If you don't want to watch the video, here's how the steps break down:

Step 1 - Use native plants that are adapted to the rainfall in your area
Step 2 - Plant spreading plants to hold moisture in the soil
Step 3 - Limit lawn
Step 4 - Use sprinklers in early morning or after dusk
Step 5 - Adjust sprinkler heads so the water droplets are large
Step 6 - Use micro or drip irrigation
Step 7 - Don't overfeed your lawn
Step 8 - Keep your grass longer and leave the cut ends on top (Don't Bag)
Step 9 - Mulch

The video is very well done - hats off to Howcast user Jordana_Giorgio. You can watch it below.
