Unsure how to have a healthy garden that is still waterwise? Find out by attending the free Waterwise Garden Workshop to be held at the Shire of Mundaring Civic Area in Mundaring on Saturday, 24 February from 9am to 12.30pm.


Water Corporation is working with Waterwise Council, Shire of Mundaring, and South Metropolitan TAFE to deliver the free workshop to help households save water.


Water Corporation spokesperson Clare Lugar said there were many ways to save water in the garden even during summer.


“More than 40 per cent of household water use occurs outside the home and our gardens are great places to start looking at where we can make water savings,” Ms Lugar said.


“This interactive workshop will cover how to set up your garden and irrigation system so you can have a healthy waterwise garden throughout summer. It also includes tips on how to get the best out of your irrigation controller.”

Water Corporation launched two programs in spring to help households save water in the garden.


The Waterwise Irrigation Controller Offer is available through Waterwise Irrigation Specialists and allows Perth households to receive a 50 per cent discount (maximum of $350) on weather based irrigation controllers.


The Waterwise Garden Rewards Program allows Water Corporation customers to purchase selected mulch, soil wetting agent and soil improvers from Bunnings and receive one, two or three more products, free of charge.
