Optimise Your Irrigation

In Victoria, each season tells its own tale. Spring breathes life into blooming fields, with gentle rains nurturing the landscape. As autumn arrives, it paints the foliage in warm, vibrant hues, and the air turns crisp. This ever-changing scenery offers a glimpse into nature's cycle of rejuvenation and tranquility, showcasing Victoria's unique charm.

As the seasons change in Victoria, so do the water needs of your lawn and garden. It is now time to adjust your irrigation controller for the current season to avoid overwatering. No matter what the season, your controller should always be turned off when it is raining.

If you need assistance re-programming your controller, please contact your local Waterwise Specialist.
