Participants in the trial receive: a visit from an irrigation specialist to assess the condition and effectiveness of their automated drip irrigation system; a written report containing the advice and recommendations made by the irrigation specialist; a FREE rain gauge; and are eligible to apply for a rebate of up to $100 for improvements to their irrigation system or garden’s water efficiency.
