Being wise with your water does not necessarily mean giving it up altogether (though we firmly believe that is a goal worth striving for!), but rather using it at the right time, in the right place, and thinking about how much water you really need to spend.
Plant at the right time of year – give the plants a chance to establish with the winter rains. Plant appropriate species – there are many thousands of plants which will thrive on low-water or no-water regimes. But most importantly: reconsider your lawn.
