How to choose water wise lawn alternatives

First, have a look at your garden and decide where you have ‘silly pieces’ of lawn, like:

• Bits of lawn between pavers
• A garden where the shape is rather tight
• Lawn under the eaves of a house

Visit your local GCA garden centre and ask for their advice on the best options of organic and inorganic alternatives

Try these:
Aloes
Clivia
Gazania
Vinca
Vygies
Paving
Gravel

Still want lawn? Plant types of lawn suitable for your site and region. Choose types that don’t guzzle water, but still remain lush. These include:

LM Lawn
Buffalo Lawn
Princess Lawn

For large open areas of land, choose indigenous, bird friendly grasses
