Graywater Workshop

— filed under:

Have you ever thought of re-using water from your shower or washing machine to irrigate your landscape? Maybe you didn't even know it was possible. Your great-grandmother might not have considered using water twice to be a big deal—it was just common practice back then. These days, as we all think about ways to use less water around our homes, the subject of graywater is gaining popularity again.
