Water is a scarce and precious resource that all living things need yet we use 60% of our drinking water in our landscapes, and even on dry days, millions of gallons of water are wasted due to inefficient irrigation. When it does rain, we throw it all away into our storm drains where it picks up trash and pollution and ends up at our beach and in our ocean killing wildlife and risking human health.
