Simon Corbell is promising a horticulturalist consultation in every garden.
Through GardenSmart, an expert horticulturist visits homes and assesses the garden before providing advice on issues such as which plants are best suited to the garden and how to minimise water use.
GardenSmart also includes a $50 rebate to be used on water-saving products such as mulch, drip irrigation systems or components, weeping hose, tap timers, soil additives for moisture retention, irrigation system controllers, moisture/rain sensors for irrigation systems, water wands, downpipe water diverters, greywater hoses, compost bins, worm farms and books on water-efficient gardening.
“Watering the garden is the single biggest user of household water but with the help of GardenSmart, Canberrans can make a long term commitment to sustainable water use,” Mr Corbell said.
