Is water conservation a threat or an opportunity for business? What are the best practices for reducing outdoor water waste? A turfgrass grower and one of the pioneers in Xeriscape™, for example, might respond differently to these questions.

By presenting a variety of viewpoints – those of sports field managers, turfgrass growers, builders, municipalities and local government representatives, landscape architects, irrigation consultants, landscape contractors, and non-governmental environmental groups – this paper identifies both areas in which there is common ground and opportunities for further collaboration by different green industry groups.

This paper reflects attitudes that various factions of the green industry have on water conservation. It also investigates the social and economic factors behind water conservation and gauges their impact on the green industry. An examination of the energy efficiency movement offers additional context to the past, present and future of water conservation.

It is Rain Bird’s belief that through education and communication, we can all contribute to finding a solution to global water shortages. The need to conserve water has never been greater. We want to do more, and with your help, we can.
