Save Water Perth!

This is the latest Water Authority campaign and it lets us know we have had an unusually hot and dry start to spring and summer so our dams are sitting very low.

If you can drop 2 minutes off your watering time you will help out!

Just call if you need help

Almost half of household water is being used on our gardens. And it’s only getting hotter – so we need to act now.

Please join others and reduce sprinkler run times by just 2 minutes per station. So we can all avoid wasting more precious water. 

Water saving tips for the garden

Watering early is best as it allows the water to soak to the roots and be available to plants throughout the day when they need it most. And remember, only water once on your rostered watering days.

Good soil is the foundation of a waterwise garden, but sandy soil is common in WA and has a low water and nutrient holding capacity. Use soil improvement products and wetting agents to reduce water loss.

Apply 5–10cm of a chunky, waterwise mulch to significantly reduce evaporation loss and save water. It’s like sunscreen for the soil and can also reduce weed growth and improve the look of your garden.

These are suitable for our climate and can live with less water. Group plants with similar watering needs so you can water efficiently, or get creative and transform the lawn on your verge into a waterwise garden.
