In a 7 year period your water bill will exceed $10,000 and you will consume 3.6 million gallons of water ...
Just to keep your grass green
Save Money - The $1,462 annual cost of watering is not the only cost you will incur during the summer. Aeration, De-thatching and Fertilizing are also yard maintenance necessities that add to your maintenance bill.
Save Time - Grass will need mowing once every week. Fertilizing should be done monthly. Mowers, weed whackers, and irrigation require maintenance. De-thatching and aerating are also needed periodically. Overseeding is very time intensive. Don't forget to add weed, disease and pest control to your schedule.
Save Water - The average Utah home will consume 526,000 gallons of water per year just to maintain their property. Reducing this consumption will both help your pocketbook and the environment.
Save the Environment - Much of our water pollution comes from runoff of fertilizers and pesticides. Rock landscaping does not require these environmentally damaging treatments.
