DROUGHT PROOF YOUR LANDSCAPE GARDEN IN SYDNEY

Is it irresponsible to water your garden during the drought?

Considering the effects trees and gardens have on reducing temperatures and providing wildlife habitat the answer is a resounding ….NO!

Trees can reduce temperatures by an average of 10 Degrees Celcius, that’s cheaper than air-conditioning and better for the climate.

Tips & Tricks

Here’s an easy list of things to do to help with your time and budget…

Shower

Have a cool shower with your indoor pot plant

Water tanks

Install water tanks to store runoff…..many sizes and capacities for small to large spaces

Drip irrigation

Drip irrigation from your local irrigation shop … they can give expert advice on what to buy and DIY

Mulch and more mulch

The best type to use is leaf mulch like the forest floor, as it has leaves, twigs and chips. Just wood chip can cause ‘nitrogen draw down’ in plants, so you then spend lots of money fertilising!

Wetting agents

Wetting agents – either granules or wetting solution from your local hardware store
