We are in the market for a sprinkling system but do not want to waste water. What would you suggest?

thanks, Linda

I do not have a brand name for you, but I would suggest one that puts out large droplets of water. A fine mist is a waste as it evaporates easily.
Is your landscape the way you want it? Do you need a big turfgrass area? Or is this for gardens?
Along with being organic, www.txsmartscape.com can save you $$ in many ways. I just learned that cottontail rabbits do not eat native plants so much. They love to eat pansies, petunias, etc. This will save you from replacing eaten plants! Native plants will save you on watering needs, fertilizing needs and money involved with replacing plants that are sick or die because they are not native or adapted.

Hi Linda,

This is my first post but I hope it helps. I built a small English cottage garden in my back yard and I swear by the Drip Mate Watering System. Hook it up to a simple, cheap timer and I've never had to worry about watering again. You can buy on-line at:
