Can you water your garden with soft water?

Most plants cannot tolerate high amounts of salt. The sodium in softened water actually interferes with the water balance in the plants and can kill plants by “fooling” them into thinking they have taken up more water than they have. Softened water essentially causes the plants in your garden to die of thirst.

This outlet allows you to water plants, trees and landscape with untreated water, but enjoy all the benefits of softened water in the home. While calcium and magnesium (found in hard water) can be helpful plant nutrients, too much of a good thing isn't so good. Some plants don't do well when watered with “hard water”.
