Water saving tips

There are many little things that we can all do to save water in the garden:

  • Check your sprinkler run time – most irrigation systems can be reduced by two minutes per station and still maintain a healthy garden.
  • Water before 9am or after 6pm on your rostered watering day – this reduces the amount of water lost through evaporation.
  • Mulch your garden to keep the water in – this can achieve water savings of up to 20%
  • Put a cover on your backyard pool – without a cover it is possible to lose your pool's entire volume of water each year through evaporation.
