Who's the bigger water hog - lawn or flower beds?
Even though we have had rain here this spring/summer, the overall water situation throughout most of Texas is still pretty bleak. We received a letter from our water municipality stating that our base rate for 1000 gallons will double by 2013. We have 7/8 of an acre and watering is a BIG problem. I realize that watering needs vary from lawn type to lawn type and plant type to plant type, but generally speaking, does your lawn consume more water than your flower beds?
