  • Wash your car on the lawn and fertilise at the same time – car shampoos use phosphates that are similar to many fertilisers.
  • Use a broom, rake or outdoor blower to clean paths, paved areas and driveways instead of hosing.
  • Make sure taps and hose fittings are not leaking, a dripping tap can waste more than 2000 litres a month.
