Outdoor Water Consumption

Watering with a typical sprinkler using a standard 5/8″ garden hose for one hour uses about 1,020 gallons of water; if you water three times per week, that`s about 12,240 gallons per month.

We`re often asked how much rainwater storage do I need for my garden? The simplest way to look at this is to take the average usage per day, let`s say its 3 watering cans worth. A typical watering can is 5 litres and so the daily usage would be 3 watering cans x 5 litres which is 15 litres per day.
A good rule of thumb is 1-2 gallons of water for smaller accent plants, 3-5 gallons for larger shrubs and 10 gallons of water for a 15 gallon plant each time you water. Boxed trees will need even more water but it doesn`t have to be applied every day. Consult StarNote 001, Planting Guide, for new plants.
So, how much is an inch of water a week? Experts say this amounts to roughly six gallons per square yard per week. One crude but easy way to figure out how long you need to water to get one inch a week: scatter five empty tuna cans or other containers throughout your lawn.
Gallons per Hour to Inches per Hour

Or a total of 6.4 inches per hour.

The average price of water in the United States is about $1.50 for 1,000 gallons. At that price, a gallon of water costs less than one penny.
Household water use varies enormously depending on the number of people in a house and their personal needs. On average; A person uses 145 litres per day.
The formula looks like: Evapotranspiration x Crop Coefficient = Plant-Water Requirement.
The 1 gallon pot size is approximately 6 to 7 inches tall and wide. Expect the plant size to be between 6 inches to 2 feet tall and 6 to 18 inches wide. 1 gallon shrubs establish and grow quickly once planted in the ground and watered properly.
The best time to water plants is in the morning or evening.

Morning watering is actually preferable to evening watering as the plant has time to dry before the sun goes down. At night, water tends to rest in the soil, around the roots, and on the foliage, which encourages rot, fungal growth, and insects.

If a standard showerhead is fit, the shower will likely emit around an extra half gallon of water per minute, so a 5-minute shower will use in the region of 12.5 gallons.
If the soil is dry an inch beneath the surface, your garden probably needs watering. We also find it helpful to keep the following watering formula in mind: 1 inch of water per 1 square foot = 0.62 gallons.
Watering the garden with a hose pipe uses 1000 litres of water an hour! Watering the garden with a watering can uses 10 litres of water. running uses 6 litres per minute.
The flow rate is the amount of water that travels over the garden hose every minute and it`s commonly measured in gallons per minute (GPM). A garden hose will have between a 9-17 GPM water flow rate. The average garden hose, depending on the kind of hose, can be around 12-13 gallons, or 720 to 780 gallons per hour.
