South African Landscapers’ Institute & Rand Water’s
GUIDE TO WATER WISE LANDSCAPING
Drought, a word that has appeared more frequently in our conversations of late. To ignore the reality about the changes to our climate would be like shooting ourselves in the foot.
Water and the availability of water is the heartbeat of climate change. Understanding, respecting and preserving this resource is of vital importance because it effects our planning, it affects our ability run our business and business operations, which all have major financial implications.
Not to mention our environment, ecosystems and ultimately all life on earth is dependent on this resource for survival. All water resources used in and to maintain landscapes must therefore be used sparingly and with utmost care.
Acknowledging this, Rand Water and SALI have collaborated to produce this
Guide to Water Wise Landscaping which will take you on a journey to understand some of the complexities associated with supplying potable drinking water and how climate change could affect this supply in the future.
We then go on to elaborate on practical water wise principles that can be
implemented to help reduce water use (from any source) in the landscape. By adapting landscapes to reduce their need on water, the landscaping industry can make a substantial contribution to reducing demand on water resources.
SALI together with Rand Water has for the first time modified the criteria for the SALI Awards of Excellence to include a Water Wise element in each category of the awards. This shift in mind-set creates a platform to celebrate different types of landscapes for the value they add in various water conservation principles. Finally the latter part of the guide showcases this.
With such achievements in one of the worst droughts faced by South Africans, we hope that this guide will inspire anyone who engages in a landscaped environment to appreciate it and to be Water Wise.
