Lincoln Library Community Green

The Lincoln Library Community Green is an example of SMART water use in the Selwyn District


  • Irrigation is focused on the lawn rather than the planted areas
  • Irrigation is set to timers, which only come on at night for short periods of time
  • For the planted areas ‘rain gardens’ are used, where the paving is sloped toward the planted areas to utilise rainfall instead of irrigation
  • Natives are used to enable survival off season rainfall instead of irrigation
