I have been wanting to start using the washing machine water on the garden. Our washing machine uses about 180 litres of water with one load. Our house uses the washing machine about 3 times a week- that’s alot of water! I am going to use this water on the beds in the side of the house.
I have mulched these beds in preparation for planting.
It turns out that using the washing machine water on the garden in this way is a bad idea because you should not let washing machine water sit as its full of bacteria. I then modified the method so I now have the outflow flow straight onto the garden. This works quite well
