Answer: In general terms gray water can safely be used on ornamental shrubs and trees but not on anything edible. State regulations for graywater vary widely, so check with your municipality to be sure it is legal. Some states consider kitchen-sink drainage blackwater because it contains grease, nutrients and bits of food. In most states, graywater cannot be used above ground without a special permit so check into it before using gray water in your landscape.
