Smart Watering Guide



Drought and water restrictions might have passed in most parts of Australia (with Western Australia a notable exception), but we should not forget the lessons learnt in recent years. We came to realise that most gardens had been regularly over-watered as gardeners found that their plants survived, even thrived, despite receiving less water due to restrictions.

Water scarcity and rising water costs have made us all far more aware that water is a precious resource, so the lifting of restrictions should not mean a return to the ‘bad old days’ of applying water to our gardens without thought. Reducing water use will have little or no effect on your plants and will save you time, effort and money.
