27 March 2017.

Looking at the climate forecast summary (March – May), rainfall is expected to be on average with temperatures likely to be on average or slightly above.

In the practical sense – this means that your irrigation system is not likely to be needed very often EXCEPT were gardens or pots are near building or under eves / balconies. Pick a drought sensitive plant and casually look for plant wilt.

The extra rain has stabilised (expanded) the soil around our house footing so we can now lock the back door effectively. Did you notice movement within your house? Some soils in the Sydney basin Shrink on drying and SWELL on wetting. If this has happened to you during the recent dry period you could irrigate to maintain suitable foundations (WARNING in some cases this extra bit of rain may eroded soils from under your house down hill…..

Now is the time to prepare to winterise your system. Look at the frequency the system comes on and the run times. Are you aware of areas not getting watered, or if you were tried of hand watering in particular areas it maybe a consideration to revamp your system before October. Call or email your request.
