    Jargon & Glossary
    Cottage Garden
  • Informal garden containing flowering plants, often alongside herbs and vegetable patches. These typically require regular watering, putting them out of favour in drought-affected parts of Australia.
  • Native Garden
  • Comprising indigenous plants adapted to Australian conditions, native gardens require less watering than cottage gardens, and are popular due to water restrictions.
  • Water Restrictions
  • Water restrictions are introduced gradually, depending on degree of water depletion in key catchment areas. Adherence relies on householder goodwill and neighbourly monitoring.
