Abstract/Contents:Dispels 'myths' stating that turfgrass wastes water, and that it uses 50% of the outdoor water supply. In fact, domestic water only accounts for 0.9% of all surface and ground water withdrawls. Discusses the fact that drought resistant plants do not necessarily mean low water-use plants, and that professionals and the public need to practice seasonal watering techniques to reduce water usage. Other 'myths' dispelled are that plants waste water, and that banning outdoor watering and reducing turfgrass use are not effective in reducing water use.
Note:Reprinted in Turfgrass Management in the Pacific Northwest, Vol. 2, No. 2, Spring 1999.
