Saving Water in the Garden

  • Hosepipes, if left on, can waste a huge amount of water – so you can fix a timer to stop this happening. 
  • Don’t over-water your lawn – train it to use less water by encouraging the roots to grow deeper.
  • Set your mower level higher during summer and let your lawn grow longer. Keeping grass longer shades the soil surface and reduces evaporation loss.
  • If you have an outdoor pool or spa, keep it covered when not in use. Covers will help prevent water from evaporating.
