Plant trees to shade your home, reducing your cooling costs in the summer months.  Typically, newly planted trees will begin shading windows in their first year and will reach your roof in 5-10 years.

Grey water, which is reused shower, bath, and laundry water, can be used to water plants to help stretch your water budget during the hot summer months if the following precautions are followed:  NEVER use grey water for direct consumption, or on anything that may be eaten, even seedlings; grey water should not be sprayed, allowed to puddle, or run off your property; do not use water that has come into contact with soiled diapers, meat, or poultry, or a sick person; do not use on container plants or acrid-loving plants such as azaelas, begonias, or rhododendrons; rotate with fresh water to leach out any harmful build-up.  If using laundry water, biodegradable soaps appear to have the least harmful effects; chlorine bleach can harm plants.

Most clothing doesn’t need hot water to be cleaned well.  98% of energy used by washing machines is used to heat water.  The higher the temperature of the water, the more electricity you're running and the higher the cost in terms of both energy use and money.  Additionally, cold water will help clothes keep their colors brighter longer.

The best time to water plants is in the morning, both to maximize the efficiency of water used and to promote healthy flora.  Mornings tend to be cool and without strong winds, so the amount of water lost to evaporation is much less than during the middle of the day.  Ideally, use a drop or soak system instead of a regular sprinkler.  Sprinklers tend to waste a lot of water and drench the leaves, which are prone to damage as well as disease.
