Do you have Hay fever?
For many Australians, the warmer months of the year mean taking drastic measures to cope with the symptoms of allergies and hay fever. With an estimated 40% of Australians experiencing allergies, many of us have to prepare in advance for hay fever season.
Hay fever Symptoms
If your symptoms occur consistently throughout the year, it is likely that the cause is coming from inside your home, such as dust mites, mould or pet related. If your nose starts itching, your eyes become watery and you find yourself reaching for the antihistamines during the warmer months, then your hay fever is likely to be coming from outside the home.
Windy days will often exacerbate allergy symptoms – this is due to pollen spreading in the breeze. Pollen from grasses, weeds and trees are the main culprits for seasonal hay fever. A general tip for plants in your garden is the brighter the flower, the safer it’s likely to be for a hay fever sufferer. Plants with bright flowers are usually (but not always) pollinated by insects or birds, and don’t need to rely on wind to spread their pollen.
Low-Allergy Lawn Solutions
You don’t have to resort to concrete or pavers to escape your lawn! There are low allergy options out there. If you are one of Australia’s many hay fever sufferers, consult with your local asthma or allergy council on the best varieties of plants and trees for your lawn. Sir Walter Buffalo is a low allergy turf, meaning that it produces substantially less pollen than other varieties. This makes Sir Walter an excellent choice for your lawn.
