29 July 2013, TGA Chief Exec completes trio of BBC radio interviews on brown lawns

The TGA's Chief Executive has completed a trio of interviews on BBC radio stations to discuss the association's 'brown lawns are cool' message during the recent heatwave.

Tim Mudge has spoken with BBC Radio Lincoln, Somerset and Kent in the past fortnight, where he's explained that the watering of established lawns is wasteful and unnecessary.

On Twitter, Waterwise, environmental bloggers and several water companies have backed the TGA's message to homeowners, using the hashtag #brownlawns.
