Beat The Hosepipe Ban

2 Comments 25 May 2012

The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) and the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) welcome the news from the water companies that landscaping and turf businesses are exempt from the hosepipe ban as of today.

The adjustment to the Temporary Use Ban by the seven water companies in the south and east of England allows gardening businesses and their customers to use hosepipes to water newly laid turf and plants, for up to 28 days from planting.

This decision comes as it was confirmed that the record rainfall experienced in April and continuing rain in May has reduced the severity of the ongoing water shortage in the South and East of England although groundwater levels still remain exceptionally low and the hosepipe bans remain in place.

    This is been something we’ve been looking to get in place for months and was happy to be part of the campaign. This will keep suppliers, landscaping businesses and plants alive!

      Congratulations Ben! It was worth it and hopefully plans in place should we have another hosepipe ban in the future. Thanks for your support.
