Plant the perfect low-allergen garden


Plant the perfect low-allergen garden

Do your eyes and nose get itchy at the thought of entering the garden? Hayfever sufferers – rejoice! 

You can create a low-allergen garden just by planting the right lawn and surrounding plants. 

For a low allergen lawn, choose either Emerald Kikuyu or Pooch Couch. 

 

Munns tip: The trick to maintaining a low allergen lawn is to ensure you cut the lawn regularly so none of the grasses produce seed heads. Seed heads in turn produce pollen that causes the allergy.

 

When choosing flowering plants to have in your garden, look for ones with nectar and heavy pollen grains. These plants don't release their pollen into the air but transfer it to other flowers by birds and insects.
