If you live in California, you know that Californians are facing one of the worst droughts on record. For the most part, making small changes to conserve water has been fairly easy – full loads of laundry, shorter showers, leak repairs, and reusing sink water for our plants. However, living in the desert and cutting back on watering our lawn has been more challenging. So when I was chosen to receive a sample of Scotts® EveryDrop™ water maximizer, I was over-the-moon excited to give it a try.
Why am I so excited? Well, our Governor has asked Californians to reduce our overall water use by 25%, but cutting back on watering in the desert hasn’t been kind to our lawn. The hot California days have made our lawn soil dry, compact, and hard. In turn, much of the sprinkler water doesn’t penetrate the soil and runs off into the gutter – not what we want.
The new Scotts® EveryDrop™ uses a unique blend of wetting agents that helps move water through hard soil and ensures it reaches the plant roots – where it’s needed the most. As you can see from the photos, we desperately needed the help of Scotts® EveryDrop™ lawn care.
Taking advantage of the free weekend labor, I had my son help me spread the Scotts® EveryDrop™ over the entire lawn with a Scotts® spreader. Applying the water maximizer was really easy and took about 10 minutes to do the entire front and back lawns. Now my lawn is ready to take on the California drought and I feel better knowing that I’m making use of every drop of water.
Here are a few more Lawn & Landscape care tips to maximize every drop of water.
