Polymer Lawn Care Saves Water – A Ton!

Aqua Cents – a remarkable innovation that dramatically cuts lawn water waste and use

Landscape irrigation accounts for almost one-third of all residential water use, totaling more than 7 billion gallons per day in the United States. Almost 50 percent of that is wasted– both commercially and residentially– due to evaporation, wind, improper system design, or overwatering.

With many cities facing severe water shortages and a drought spreading throughout the Southwest, lawns are squandering a precious resource we cannot afford to lose. More cities across the country are installing water meters, and California has mandated that these be installed in all cities by the year 2025.

But saving water requires more than metering. It means rethinking how we water our plants, and developing new best practices that will help us create substantial water savings.

Aqua Cents is an extraordinary technology that could help us with both.
