Home Living : December 7th 2010
2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, December 7, 2010 HOMELIVING Don't forget the garden The Christmas break is almost here and that holiday you've been dreaming about all year is beckoning. The bags are packed, the fridge is on power save, the dog and cat are sorted and the paper's been cancelled. You're all set -- but what about the garden? An Australian summer can be tough on the garden and if it doesn't rain for a week or two, you may come home to a backyard more like a lunar landscape. If you can't organise for a friend to drop by and water every few days, there are a few things you can do to help the greenery stay that way. Short-term: 1. Add water crystals to potted plants and garden soil. They collect the water and gradually release it back into the soil 2. Add a wetting agent if the top layer of your soil seems to be water resistant 3. Water the garden thoroughly then add a generous layer of mulch to garden beds. This should be topped up at least once a year 4. Don't cut the grass too low or too often. Roots are vulnerable to the heat 5. Clear grass from near trees and shrubs as it competes for water and nutrients For the long-term: 1. Pick tough plants suited to local conditions 2. Plant groundcovers to keep soil moist 3. Lay gravel paths rather than concrete to absorb rainwater S1920AW www.sydneydaylight.com.au Daylight Designs Unit 4A 5 Wenban Place, Wetherill Park Telephone 1300 995 676 ‡Refer to Manufacturer's Statement Bulletin #MS3 - 2010 August Solatube® Premier Dealer s 7ORLD S BEST TUBULAR DAYLIGHTING PRODUCT s (IGHEST PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE s 5SES NO ELECTRICITY #UTS ENERGY COSTS s "UILDING COMPLIANT BUSHFIRE KIT AVAILABLE Bring daylight into your home! s .EW OPTIONAL THERMOSTAT WORKS WHEN YOU NEED IT s #OOLER ROOF SPACE MEANS A COOLER HOME in Summer s %LIMINATES CONDENSATION IN THE ROOF SPACE s 3OLAR POWERED 2EQUIRES NO ELECTRICITY -AKE YOUR Hot Roof Space Bearable more SOLARST R PERFOR M A EQUALS 10+ ‡ FREE INSTALLATION ON SOLARSTAR ROOF FAN* *OFFER ENDS 31ST DECEMBER 2010 At Home, T14, Alexandria ktak 131913 %off all Shutters & Blinds %off all Awnings accentblinds.com.au Hurry!
