Although many species of turf grass, trees and shrubs are tolerant of recycled water, landscape management is an important aspect of recycled water usage for irrigators. Water quality for trees and shrubs is important in determining whether plants will thrive. Soluble salts (salinity), sodium, bicarbonate, pH, nutrient elements, boron and chloride are important water quality aspects that can affect vegetation.
