Living Water Smart offers a $300 - $500 Garden Tune Up rebate, where local expert irrigators come to your home or business to tune up your irrigation, so you have the same great garden using less water.
If you’ve been wondering why your neighbour’s garden is flourishing while yours is looking a little sad, the secret may be more than just green fingers. A glorious garden rarely happens by accident; it usually stems from great planning.
When watering, less really is more. But if you’re unsure (as most of us are) and are over watering just to be on the safe side, take a minute to read our advice on how to plan your watering schedule according to the time of year. Your garden and your water bill will thank you for it.
Irrigation controllers and tap timers are a great way to give your garden the water it needs when it needs it. But some irrigation controllers can be hard to program. Inputting multiple start times is a very common trap that can lead to a lot of wasted water.
