Ever wondered how much water is used nationwide to water the lawns in America? Well, look no further than this infographic. Be forewarned, this infographic is loaded with tons of useful information, but don't forget to take a break to winterize your irrigation system on time. 

How much water does the average homeowner use on their lawn annually?

This is crazy but, the average homeowner uses one-third of their water on their landscape irrigation. That is the equivalent of 912 bathtubs full per year. 

How much water that is used in the lawn is wasted?

The craziest part is that as much as 50% of water that is used in lawns is wasted. You can prevent wasting water in your lawn in several ways. By watering at the right time, by avoiding over-watering, and by using an up-to-date sprinkler system. 

Why is updating my irrigation system so important?

Look, a broken irrigation system can waste 25,000 gallons in just one season! Which is nearly enough to fill an olympic sized swimming pool. 

Are water cost rates rising?

Yes! In just 12 years water rates have doubled in much of the US. Meaning that the cost of water waste is getting higher and higher.

How can I cut down on water waste with my irrigation system? 

There are many ways you can decrease your annual water waste when caring for your lawn. One, use efficient spray nozzles, use drip irrigation to get water exactly where it belongs, two purchase a smart controller that can detect when it has rained, and three restrict water flow efficiently. 

What other ways can I save water in the lawn?

There are other ways to save water too. For example, you can ask your water provider about water-saving rebates, you can consult a pro, and share these water saving tips with others.
