We all love having a garden to simply enjoy, pick flowers from, grow food and play in. Planting a more smart water landscape will help you to maintain your garden during the hot summer months without using a huge amount of water.


By planning well, using your gardens natural features and choosing the right plants you can create or change your garden haven.

Autumn is the best time to get plants in the ground...so get started planning your working bee!  Getting plants in now means the plant has six to nine months to settle in and establish itself before the hot weather sets in.


Remember, even young drought tolerant plants need looking after, with a drink once every fortnight during the first summer. If you plant in spring they will need water once or twice a week.
