The average garden uses roughly 2,000L per week, therefore any good sustainable garden should practice water efficiency.

Mulching performs a variety of functions in the garden and can reduce water evaporation by up to 70% and therefore the amount of watering required so it’s an essential part of any sustainable garden.
