Optimise Watering Times

Optimise Your Irrigation

In Western Australia, the vastness of the land embraces a kaleidoscope of climates, each painting its own distinct portrait of nature. In the North, the seasons oscillate between the lush, vibrant wet and the serene, expansive dry. Down South, a more temperate rhythm unfolds, with wildflowers carpeting the ground in Spring and pristine beaches mirroring Summer's amazing colours. From the rugged red Outback to the serene coastal towns, Western Australia's diverse tapestry of seasons, weather and landscapes offers an endless panorama of nature's gifts.

As the seasons change in Western Australia, 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 a Waterwise Garden Irrigator.
