Spring is the perfect time to get out in the garden and the McGowan Government, through the Water Corporation, is offering two new waterwise programs to help use water more wisely outside the home.

Water Corporation customers in the Perth metropolitan area (including Cannington) can access the Waterwise Irrigation Controller Offer, and customers from across the State can take part in the Waterwise Garden Rewards program.

The Waterwise Irrigation Controller Offer enables households to receive a 50 per cent discount (up to $350) on the supply and installation of a weather-based irrigation controller, through Waterwise irrigation specialists.

Weather-based controllers ensure sprinkler systems are set to water on the correct day and automatically make irrigation adjustments based on weather data from local weather stations and the needs of the garden.

The Waterwise Garden Rewards program is available to all Water Corporation customers across Western Australia who purchase selected waterwise products from Bunnings.

Depending on the products chosen, you will receive one, two or three more products free of charge when you register to receive a discount coupon from the Water Corporation. Products available include mulch, soil wetting agent and soil improvers.
