Stop Press: Update to hosepipe ban 21st May 2012

Embattled landscaping, turf and gardening businesses were made exempt from the ‘hosepipe ban’ today after it was confirmed that record rainfall had reduced the severity of the ongoing water shortage in the South and East of England.
The adjustment to the Temporary Use Bans imposed by Thames Water and six other companies will allow gardening businesses to use hosepipes to water newly laid turf and plants, for up to 28 days. This includes allowing the clients of garden businesses to water their new plants/lawns for up to 28 days with a hosepipe. Obviously we should all still be as frugal as possible with watering but this is great news for the anyone planning to replant their garden this summer.

About Kathy Taylor

I design gardens of all sizes, from small town courtyards to large country estates. I am happy to be involved in simple planting plans through to complete redesigns. Colour, texture and form are essential in my designs, which blend contemporary and traditional elements. I believe that the smaller details make a garden what it is. The garden is now regarded as an outside room to be enjoyed as an extension of your house.
