Houses have grown larger, house blocks smaller and turf has become an enemy of the environment! We have heard the pleas, "lawns waste precious water and mowing adds to pollution so tear up the lawn and pave the area or lay fake grass!”
For the 'environmental vandals' amongst us, AQUATREK offers the following solace and amazing facts.
It is usually much cheaper and easier to install a tank and pump than replace lawn with paving. DURING RAIN AND BEFORE THE TANK FILLS, IT IS BEST TO TURN THE SPRINKLER ON AND SOAK THE LAWN RATHER THAN HAVE EXCESS WATER OVERFLOWING TO STORM WATER. This will help drought proof the lawn by encouraging deeper root growth, gain maximum advantage from SUPADIVERTA supplying a small tank plus assist with groundwater recharge. Turf filters water and groundwater quality and quantity is an extremely important environmental issue of growing concern.
HANDY HINT: The Bureau of Meteorology website link to the radar shows approaching rain bands size and intensity. With experience, householders can pre-moisten gardens and lawns with stored water to gain maximum benefit from anticipated rainfall.
