Casa Quickie: Be a Water Miser With Mulch

Overwhelmed with your garden's water needs thanks to this Summer's scorching weather? Don't turn to that soaker hose quite yet.

Instead of relying on water, try adding a layer of mulch instead. Just two inches of clean straw, composted leaves, wood chips, or even seaweed will prevent precious moisture from evaporating too quickly.
