From 1 September 2010 households and businesses can apply for a one-off, 28 day exemption from water restrictions to enable new warm season lawns to be established.
Warm season grass uses a lot less water than other grass. Couch, Buffalo and Kikuyu thrive throughout spring and summer on little rainfall – making them well suited to Melbourne's changing climate. For the average Melbourne backyard, water use is likely to be reduced by 70 per cent.
The exemption will apply for installing pre-grown turf and for sowing grass seeds, but is limited to one exemption per property per year.
Find out more about the warm season grass 28 day exemption.
