I love how innovative this idea is. It could really cut down your water bill costs if you water your lawn. I don't have a lawn to water but I bet this is way better than watering yours everyday especially during the summer. The results may vary depending on the size of your lawn, front and back but once you calculate how much water it needs you can start cutting your consumption.
