We don't have city/town water.  Wells supply the water.


I rarely water our lawn, but when I do, I take water from the ground, and return it to the ground.  The only "loss" is through evaporation, and that can be reduced by watering in the evening, or very early in the morning.


No matter how many loads of wash, or how many times we flush the toilet, the water returns to the ground where it passes through a septic system and leaching field.  Only a miniscule amount evaporates into the atmosphere.



Wash the car?  The same.  Do it off the driveway where the water can soak into the earth more quickly.  Washing on a hot asphalt driveway will up the evaporation.

I have a very green lawn and I have never watered my lawn, ever. I live in the Great Lakes states so water in not a problem, except for a few weeks in late July and August when I get to take a break from weekly mowing.


I fertilize it twice a year and it is look very green, even on Google streetview.  


I catch the grass clipping and use them as mulch on my veggie garden so I don't have to water those plants either. I'm lazy but very efficient.
