When assessing turf reduction, we recognised numerous advantages in our choice to eliminate the maintained turf under the Gaff trees.

This decision led to reduced water consumption and maintenance needs, preserving valuable resources like time and fuel, consequently contributing to the reduction of our carbon footprint.

Moreover, it played a crucial role in safeguarding the roots of the native Gaff trees, recognised as a protected species in the UAE. Additionally, this initiative facilitated the introduction of more native plant species, including the visually appealing Sporobolus grass wich is very heat and drought tolerant due to its deep rooted nature.
