Smart Water and the gardens of Melbourne

Victoria is known as The Garden State - but the drought that seems to go on forever and ever is proving very trying for keen, green gardeners.  We have Target 155 in place.  This was not very successful in the hot bush fiery summer but is starting to look manageable as autumn turns to winter and things are a little damper.  

THE Smart Water Fund together with the University of Melbourne has officially launched a new state-of-the-art website designed to help gardeners save water. is an interactive website that shows gardeners the most water efficient way to sustain their gardens.

A unique feature of allows gardeners to compare the water saving benefits of a range of watering techniques and plant options. The site also incorporates a rainwater tank calculator that allows users to explore their ability to supply water to their gardens throughout the year.

If you get into this site and use it extensively, you might like to report back to The Network and let us know how it all works for you.
