Save water in the garden and outdoors

Save your 4 - garden

It's the little things we do in our homes and gardens that can make a big difference, like watering your garden early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid evaporation during the warmest part of the day.

Level 1 water restrictions now apply. This affects the way we use water outside the home, including only watering your garden before 10am or after 4pm with a trigger nozzle, no hosing of hard surfaces, washing your car on the grass, and no use of sprinklers.

There are many simple other things you can do to help make your garden more efficient, such as mulches, soil wetting agents and irrigation controllers. There are also rainwater diverters to capture water to use on the garden and greywater systems to help reuse water around the home.

At Hunter Water, we want to share with you some practical and simple ideas on how you can sustain a beautiful garden using less water.
