Hear from some of our Waterwise Households in Action:

 “I did love my roses, but I’m a stickler for saving water so it only seemed right to replace the front garden with a native one,” Karen said.

“It was a natural ‘next step’ for us too. We hate wasting water – for years we’ve been using waterwise shower heads, we turn taps off when we brush our teeth and we’ve been collecting the cold water in a bucket while waiting for the shower to warm up.”Karen Hann

“We’ve reduced our water consumption by at least half – we’ve removed a third of our front lawn and retained the biggest patch in the shaded area, installed three-jet rotating head sprinklers and used low-cost digital garden watering timers.”Morgan Hoyes

“One of the ways we’re saving water is through planting native species in our garden which thrive without needing reticulation.”Heather Grimwood
