You know you are conservation freak when....
Tonight it snowed here in Englewood, Colorado. I have a rain barrel positioned for the gutter that drains the small area of my roof over my garage. I was throwing the snow from my driveway onto that piece of roof in order for that water to go into the rain barrel.
I threw the rest of the snow onto the drain area for a tree that I planted two summers ago.
I am trying to figure out how to put a drain the house that I can dump the water from the shower so that it immediately goes into the tree drainage area.
I have buckets under every faucet except the kitchen.
On the edge of an area in my front yard that holds a tree and some xeriscape I have two feet of mulch to capture the water that drains off.
I have routed all of my gutters to one area so that I capture all the rain off of my roof.
I have timer near the shower.
