Water issues

Using Water in the garden on turf and lawns

Water is a valuable, limited, resource that needs to be used wisely in the garden. The documents in this section are designed to help domestic and professional gardeners when they lay, or maintain, their lawns.

The TGA has worked with other trade associations and the water industry to help creat an E-Learning course, with certification, that shows professional landscapers how to plan, build and maintain the most water efficient garden possible.  The course can be accessed by clicking here.
