Washing laundry accounts for nearly 22% of indoor home water use in the U.S. With a laundry-to-landscape (L2L) greywater system you can put that water to use to grow fruit and shade trees and create a lush landscape at your home. Join Watershed Management Group for this two-part training in DIY L2L System Design and Installation and start putting your laundry water to good use.
The benefits of a laundry-to-landscape greywater system include: 1) delivery of laundry greywater up to 100 feet into the landscape and 2) specialized plumbing that allows users to fine tune the amount of greywater irrigating specific landscape areas or plants.
