Last Train I ran was First part of DEC just before I started the 20 FT curve. In fact the run made me realize I needed to do something.

It is a fast growing desert plant of some kind. I run the water from the washing machine into a tank. I then let it run out over my property.

It is real interesting I move the hose often. I will move it to a dull / dirty green area and let it run. By the next morning all the plats are fresh and vibrant green

You can tell where the water stoppedl by the color of the plants.

I did not realize you have greenery on the ground. I thought it was all sand and rocks...

Detergent, Bleach and fabric softener?



You must have the cleanest, whitest, softest grass in the world!
