For those who aren't feeling quite as D.I.Y., great news! We offer a full service installation and maintenance package to get your brown lawn green again in no time. We have too many successful installations completed to count and continue to do more every day! Check us out on YouTube and Pinterest for the examples, techniques and exciting conservation efforts from around the globe.

SPREAD THE WORD
Lightly used water from your morning shower or clothes washing is still good. Use it on your landscape.

We are fortunate enough to be able to simply turn on a faucet and clean, drinkable water comes out, but if we don't start conserving this may not always be the case. Google "South Africa’s drought" for a terrifying glimpse into what our future could become without proper conservation.
Each day, every single person uses about 40 gallons of water to wash our bodies and our clothes. No matter if you live in a home, own an apartment building or run a business, there will always be a way to divert your lightly used water to nourish your landscaping. It is well documented that over 50 percent of all water used within a city is for landscaping. For example, the grass lawns you see around town would take a column of water 4 feet high each year to stay beautiful and green.
The signs may tell us that 'Brown is the new Green' - but we say 'Grey is the new Green.' Brown landscapes save water, but green landscapes from greywater enhance our environment with air cleaning plants, cooler temperatures and habitat for wildlife with water that was going to be dumped in the ocean anyway.
A green landscape sequesters carbon for cleaner air, lowers the temperature in the surrounding area, provides a habitat for butterflies, insects, and hummingbirds, and allows rain to percolate into the ground. We need green landscapes in our cities.
