Temperatures are soaring and so are our water bills! We all know the importance of conserving water, but now that we are finally enduring the year’s hottest months, it’s time to get motivated to save water. All you have to do is take one glance at your water bill to know that something has to change. According to the EPA, an estimated amount of 7.8 billion gallons of water – or anywhere from 30 to 70 percent depending on the region – are used outdoors in the U.S. each year and as much as half of that is wasted due to inefficient watering methods. If this month’s water bill left you in shock or wondering how to lower your bill, without jeopardizing the beautiful green hue of your lawn, you’re in luck!
