Zoning is about watering some areas of the garden less than others.
The overall effect of this is the reduction of total water consumption in the garden.
Zoning works when designing new gardens but can also be applied to existing gardens.
Zoning and creating Water Smart gardens with the Plantex® range, can be applied to any size garden, a balcony, a town house garden or a landscape of a few acres.
Three easy steps to a zoned Water Smart garden
- Group plants with similar water requirements together.
- Where possible, reduce lawns and hard paving areas as these are water inefficient. Replace with open paving, stepping stones, gravel, ground cover or mulch.
- Utilise the garden's natural water resources and water harvesting in the form of swales, rain tanks, collection ponds and basins around plants.
