Michael & Karlyn Hopkinson

Michael & Karlyn Hopkinson are SMART water users in the Timaru District 


  • Their garden contains a¬†sprinkler system that covers the whole section, which is run off a pipe that has 12 taps diverting water and timers attached
  • The plants receive water by drip irrigation
  • Michael customises his water use depending on the size of the area- mini-sprinklers for planted areas and large sprinklers for the expansive lawn
  • They take water use very seriously by being prepared and knowing where the water is going
