Microirrigation

Watering restrictions are commonplace throughout Florida, but many homeowners still over-water. Over-watering does more than deplete the water supply; it also makes grass and plants prone to pests and diseases. The more you water plants the faster they grow and the more they need to be mowed and/or pruned. By operating an irrigation system correctly, you can reduce water bills and maintenance while ensuring the health of your landscape.

The Microirrigation program is sponsored by a grant from the Hillsborough County Water Resource Services. Workshops are sponsored by the Hillsborough County Water Resource Services and the Tampa Water Department.

Workshops

The Water-Wise Workshop covers Florida-friendly landscaping principles, water conservation tips, and micro/drip-irrigation. Pre-registration is required. Hillsborough County attendees receive a microirrigation starter kit, the cost is $5.00 per household per workshop.

Please visit our Calendar of Events for a complete list for gardening programs.

*NOTE: If you live in a county other than Hillsborough County, you must pay $52.07 to receive the microirrigation starter kit when you attend the workshop.
