Dead lawn cures (commercial break)

Catalonia is following Huesca and heading towards imposing hosepipe bans, and rising consumer water consumption means there’s a lot more of this on the way. However if you’re smart your garden won’t end up looking like a Saudi golf course when the council turns off the tap. A sustainable planting strategy–there are good ground-cover alternatives to grass–will significantly reduce your water bills and allow you shamelessly to flaunt your eco-cred at barbecues. You can discuss the options with Pyrenees-based garden designer Meirwen ApSimon.
