MAN, I sort of feel badposted August 1st, 2020 at 5:58 PM I am using up so much water for my plants It's really not good. I don't know if I will do that again next year, but I might because it looks so beautiful.

And the Fraser river running past with over 100 cubic kilometers a year.Are you worried about breathing,lest you use up too much oxygen? Funny watering always gives pleasureAug 2, 2020 at 1:04amNot sure who enjoys it more- me or the English garden? Luna LakeAug 2, 2020 at 10:26amNo there are watering restrictions like, the even house numbers alternate with the odd house numbers so u can only water every other day GardenerAug 2, 2020 at 2:21pmNothing wrong with watering plants. Grass is a bit iffy as that can be wasteful, but a beautiful garden is good for the environment, mindset and aesthetics. Don’t feel bad!Aug 2, 2020 at 8:41pmWe live in a temperate RAIN forest. The only reason people are freaking out about water use is because of all the water that is being sold off (at ridiculously low prices I might add), to the US (companies like Nestle who get insanely cheap water from BC and then turn around and bottle it in non-biodegradable plastic and sell it for humongous profits; it’s now been sold to a Quebec company who is going to do exactly the same thing) Not to mention all of the new developments in places like the Okanagan that is a DESERT, and was never intended to have mass numbers of people building in those hills. If it wasn’t for these issues we’d be fine with the water supply we have, although obviously people who insist on daily watering of vast areas of lawn are being very wasteful. I have a garden. Not only am I providing a beautiful view for my neighbours to enjoy, I’m also providing plants that give off oxygen and a food source for bees and other pollinators. The trade off is definitely worth the meagre amount of water that I use to sustain it. MANAug 3, 2020 at 1:38pmAre you a woman? Join the Discussion Your name Comment * your name What's your name?
