Irrigation upgrade takes the yawn out of watering the lawn

Irrigation upgrade takes the yawn out of watering the lawn

Bowling club’s new system a labour-saver

It’s a simple choice really:

A.            A watering job that will take one person four and a half hours to complete using a hand-held hose

B.            An automated irrigation system that does the job in 10 minutes.

Not surprisingly, the hardworking volunteers at the Croydon Bowling Club voted for ‘B’!

Like we said – simple.

Not so simple, however, was finding the money to make the change…

To do away with its old hand-held system and bring in the automated option, the Adelaide club required $21,000…

Luckily the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing contributed $16,000 to help get the job done, courtesy of Round 45 of the Active Club Program.

Now, finally, the Croydon bowlers’ hand-held hose woes are a thing of the past – on one of their greens at least.

Better still, they’re confident the new system will reduce water waste, leaving the club’s finances rosier, and the green even greener!
