Online PR News – 28-June-2009 – – MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Lee's landscaping and Design, a landscaping company serving the entire metropolitan Minneapolis area, recently announced it has published a set of articles aimed at helping Minnesota homeowners conserve water, save energy costs and beautify their homes. The articles have been published online and are available at no cost to homeowners.
The articles focus on ways to conserve water, including choosing the right plants and landscape design, reducing run-off and choosing the proper method of irrigation. Fifty percent of water used in North America goes towards maintaining landscaping and Lee's Landscaping and Design wants homeowners to know small changes can make a big difference in their monthly water bill.
Utilizing irrigation techniques such as drip irrigation instead of using sprinklers or watering by hand can save homeowners valuable time and money because the water is released drip by drip. Water that is released slowly has time to absorb into the soil, reducing run-off and wasted water. Other ways to conserve water include watering during the early morning or late evening hours to eliminate evaporation as well as watering close to the roots and installing permeable pavers and foundation plantings to absorb rain run-off.
"We're committed to conserving water and hope that our online articles help homeowners do just that. Most people don't realize how much water is wasted, either through excess or ineffective irrigation, run-off or landscape designs that use the wrong types of plants for the soil and climate conditions. We want homeowners to make the most out of their outdoor living spaces and landscaping," said Lee Otto, Owner of Lee's Landscaping and Design.
