September 4, 2009, Newsletter Issue #308: Prevent cracked foundations

Tip of the Week

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!
