Clean without water Always use a broom or rake rather than a hose to clear driveways and pathways of debris. Keep on top of your weeding Remove weeds as soon as they spring up as they not only shelter pests and diseases but are also notorious water thieves. Select the right plants Log on to the plant selector at www.sydneywater.com.au where you will find which plants are most compatible in your area.
