  • Reflection Question
    Waterwise Beautification Hydrozone Your Landscape
    A smart hydrozoning plan can reduce landscape water use by 20% to 70% and even reduce the need for chemicals. How might you reorganize or group the plants in your landscape or project?

    I will put each kind of flowers and trees aside
  • Reflection Question

  • Reflection Question
    Waterwise Beautification Install Greywater Catchment
    Greywater systems can reuse 50–80% of a household’s water use, but do you know its best uses?

    it will be used in daily home chores
  • Reflection Question
    Waterwise Beautification Annual Irrigation Audit
    Did you know that when an irrigation audit is conducted properly, it can provide information to improve irrigation efficiency, reduce water costs, lessen turfgrass plant damage, significantly decrease the likelihood of water runoff, and in some cases, help convince decision makers that a new irrigation system may be needed?

  • Reflection Question
    Waterwise Beautification Use Permeable Pavers
    How does overpaving contribute to stormwater pollution and degraded water quality?

    fares shmayssani's avatar
    fares shmayssani 3/23/2021 8:32 AM
    it will decrease the water quality by putting wastes in it
  • Reflection Question
    Waterwise Beautification Collect Rain Water
    Although three-fourths of our planet is covered by water, only a small fraction is suitable for use, and yet growing populations are placing more demands on this finite resource. If you had to collect, store, clean and pump your own water, as earlier generations did, how would that change the way you use it today?
