Majestic home garden grows well for former farmer


A retired orchard grower in Victoria wanted to create a beautiful garden landscape around his home. Already well acquainted with irrigation techniques from his time as a farmer, Joe wanted a solution that properly watered lawns, flowering plants and a functional vegetable garden.

Irrigear Solution

Irrigear store - Cobram Irrigation designed an irrigation system around Joe’s existing garden including trenching and installation of underground pipework and sprinklers. 

To establish a reliable source of water, a Lowara 66S11 1.1kW Submersible Pump and Franklin Motor combination were used down an existing bore, capable of supplying 70L per minute.

To facilitate scheduled, automatic watering a Raindial 12STN 3 Program Control unit was installed, with a Davey 125S Pressure pump supplying the trickle system in the vegetable garden.


The private residence now boasts an abundant garden of flowering plants and vegetables alongside green lawns. Homeowner, Joe, is highly satisfied with the results and enjoys the fruits of Irrigear’s labour through fresh produce in his home all year round.
