It goes without saying that you want your property and gardens maintained well and yet, gardens seem to be an area that causes a lot of friction between landlords and tenants.
Legislation changes from state to state in relation to water efficiency, as do water restrictions.
Be proactive in your approach and ensure that you are up to date with any recent changes. Let your tenants know when restrictions have changed.
Make it easier for them by supplying hoses, timers and other equipment that will make the watering and garden maintenance as easy and time efficient as possible.
Don’t forget to recognise and reward your tenants who do the right thing!
