Water Wise Tips for the Summer Season (revised 2006)
Water use, on average, doubles during the summer months. Water your lawn once a week, but give it a thorough soaking. This will produce a deep root system and stronger grass. When you cut your lawn, leave it at least six centimetres long to provide shade for the roots. This will allow the soil to remain moist and require less watering. To cut down on water loss from splashing, don't overfill your pool. Fill it to 15-20 centimetres from the top. A swimming pool cover will prevent evaporation, keep debris out and keep heat in.
