We need rain badly here as well, at the moment I´m only trimming my lawn once a week with the mower set at the highest setting without the grass box on....just to make it look not too stragely My 2 1000 litre water barells are nearly empty as well, light drizzel has been forecast for tuesday...will just have o wait and see what happens.
