Drought conditions are creating a challenge for many parts of Florida this year. Even though the use of tap water has fallen by 40% since the mid-80's, The state is still dealing with water shortage in contrast with the need for proper irrigation.

One option that enjoys growing support is the use of grey water to fuel residential irrigation. This method is one way to really be efficient about your use of water. These systems use reclaimed wastewater to use once again. This grey water contains a rich mix of nitrogen and phosphorus, and even acts as a fertilizer! Though the use of waste water is a clever way to extend your water use mileage, there are a number of rules regarding its uses in residential irrigation.
Climates are divided into geographic territories in which they reside. These territories are usually pretty general. If you were to examine climate through a magnified lens, you would see that climate varies between you and your neighbor's, heck, different parts of your yard have their own microclimates. These microclimates are the area of shade under the tree, that patch of cactus in the corner, etc. All of these areas of your yard can be divided into zones, all of which have different irrigation requirements. The rise of micro irrigation techniques such as mist and drip systems has allowed vast improvement in the ability of the average homeowner to conserve water.
