With more than 20 per cent potable (drinking) water used outdoors, we need to change our approach to watering the garden.
Water Wise Rules apply to outdoor water usage from 1 July 2014.
At Hunter Water, we want to share with you some practical and simple ideas on how you can sustain a beautiful garden using less water.
We recognise how important gardens are to all our residents and the enjoyment gardening brings to many people. Gardens help people feel good, encourage social interaction, increase use of outdoor space, reduce heating and cooling costs in nearby buildings by up to 20 per cent, provide oxygen and absorb significant amounts of carbon.
