Tips for Fresh Water Thinking
Apply a 5-10cm layer of Waterwise Approved mulch to your garden - Apply mulch to your garden can greatly reduce evaporation loss, improve the soil, reduce plant stress and weed growth, as well as improve the appearance of your garden
Gardens and lawns don’t need as much water in autumn, so reduce your irrigation time by five minutes per station. While you’re reducing your irrigation time, make sure you’re watering on the correct days. Sprinkler rosters are in place across the state and you can only water before 9am or after 6pm. And remember, when it rains turn off your irrigation system and let your garden have a free drink from the sky! See WaterCoporation.com.au for your roster days.
Autumn is the perfect time to make your garden waterwise. With temperatures cooling down, it's time for everyone to get out in the garden and make a few small changes that can make a big difference to your water use.
Use Waterwise plants suited to your region. They look great, thrive in our climate and require less water. Check out the Water Corporation's Waterwise Plants for WA database to choose plants suited to your garden.
