Summer has us thinking about how much water we use outdoors in warmer weather. And with persistent drought affecting many areas of the country (or “our area”), it’s a great time to reconsider how much water our lawns use over the summer and focus on plants that use less water. Outdoor water use rises to as much as 70% of total household water use in the summertime. Why not take this opportunity to consider a landscape makeover?
