Use your sprinkler on alternate days only (odd numbered houses on odd numbered days, even numbered on even days). HOW TO GET THE BEST RESULTS • Water early in the morning or late afternoon. • Use a hand held hose to target each plant. • A mulch will keep the water in the ground. • One deep watering is better than frequent light sprinkling. Water Restrictions Don't be a drip and waste it! Family: The private campsite near the river is perfect for families or small groups. A Gypsy-chic camp FROM Page 9 Steve had iron wheels cast in Palm- erston North. Using the design flair of their daughter Stella Lennox of Lennox Design, all the spaces are finished quaintly with bunting. Brightly coloured paint schemes are in the gypsy aesthetic. I took my two boys down to the river for an evening swim. It is a great stretch of river for paddling and swimming and it felt like our own private spot. Further down from the child- friendly shallows is a swimming hole where the water was deeper and quite fast moving in the middle. We went down to that part of the river later with the kayaks provided. It was the first time in a kayak for my boys, 4 and 6, and they loved it. After that second dip we headed back to the caravan green to play on the seesaw, a bit of backyard cricket and some swing ball. The addition of play equipment for kids was great and it meant we didn t have to contend with any there s nothing to do comments. The caravan site also has a fire- heat bush bath but this wasn t available in this dry summer with its fire restrictions. The loo is a permanent outhouse, immaculate with a small sink and portable toilet. The bathroom in the cookhouse hut is very well appointed with a shower that beats our one at home hands down. Even though there is no power, there is a gas-powered fridge, run- ning water and gas cookers on the counter. Tealight candle lamps hang from the walls and there are battery powered lamps for the bedrooms. In summary, Gypsy River Camp- ing is the product of a great idea skilfully executed with style to take advantage of this lovely little spot just outside of town. The idea of glam camping is that you get to have an outdoors experi- ence without the hassles and incon- veniences of proper camping. Comfy beds with beautiful linen, running water, a proper shower and no setting up or packing up camp and this one brings a level of gypsy chic to the mix. The two-night package is priced at $590. Able to sleep six, which works out to about $50 per person per night, it is a pretty reasonable price for the experience. Visit www.mas-des-saules.co.nz for more information.
