  • World Earth Day 2016!

    Today is World Earth Day, an annual event that many people are not aware of, but which is used each year to focus on supporting our environment. That's not to say, it isn't something we should be thinking about every day of the year, but the 22nd April marks a day for us to shout about it and help to drive awareness of the importance of protecting our wildlife.

    At Anglian Water Direct, we really value the environment and provide products to help you do your bit to help protect it too.

    Water is an essential part of the environment and whilst we all think about our own water consumption, it's easy to forget that it's also important for wildlife. Long periods of dry weather reduce the availability of water in habitats that plants, insects, amphibians and birds need to survive.

    Water butts and other water efficient devices don’t just help save water in your household, but can help save water for wildlife and the rest of the world.

    Make your own mark for World Earth Day by making a change today. There are many things you can do to make a difference, including saving water, composting your waste, planting a tree or even just leaving your car at home whenever you can and taking a walk.  Whatever you do, however small, it all helps protect our planet for generations to come.

  • Get your mulch on this April!

    The lighter evenings have finally kicked in, which means more daylight hours for you to spend on the garden. However, the big question is, which job to tackle first?

    A great way to spend your time would be to get some mulch down on your borders and flower beds. Mulching has loads of advantages. Depending on the type of mulch you choose, some of the benefits you can expect are:

    - It restricts weeds from growing. Weeds don’t just look unsightly, they also steal valuable nutrients from the more desirable plants in your garden

    - It helps to moderate soil-temperature and keeps soil roots cooler

    - Depending on the type of mulch you go for, it will also add nutrition to your garden as it breaks down

    - Lastly, is the added bonus of saving water...

    By laying 1-2 inches of mulch on the top of your soil, it will shield the soil from the sun, so more water is retained in the soil for the plants and less water is wasted via evaporation. This can dramatically reduce the need for watering your garden, which can become a full time job in the hotter summer months!
