It’s hard to believe, but some homes use more water outdoors in the summer than they use for all other purposes all year.
The average suburban house uses at least 30% of its water for irrigation, even though more than 50% of landscape water is lost due to evaporation or over-watering.
The good news is that highly attractive, low-maintenance landscapes are possible without enormous amounts of water. You can conserve lawn and garden water usage and have an impact far beyond your property lines.
Maybe your yard needs to catch up with your new interests, family structure or other changes? Now is a great time to find the landscape that works for you, your family and the planet.
