In hot or dry weather, where the ground around our house gets little water, we should be careful of the foundation of our house cracking; especially a slab foundation. To prevent this from happening, be sure to include the base of your home when watering the yard; this should be done ALL around our homes. If you experience water-rationing, attempt to let the washing-machine water run outside; the hose placed just to the outside part of your 'dryer vent' works well, but be sure it is secured. Soapy water never ruins grass, but may get rid of a few bugs at the same time!
