We can take care of all of these goals through the use of modern irrigation equipment.
Smart Controllers have been released by most major sprinkler brands. The upgrade to a smart box brings total automization to your sprinkler system.
Depending on the complexity of the smart controller, a number of factors will determine how your lawn is watered. Most boxes can sense weather, date, time, temperature, rainfall, forecasts, and meteorological and geographic data.
The main idea behind micro irrigation is to provide a more even distribution of water directly to plants and ground cover. The most common forms of micro irrigation systems include misters and drip irrigation systems.
This method provides the roots with needed water while also reducing waste and runoff.
These units can sense when the soil has been saturated, and to what degree. If the sensor detects excess moisture, it can reduce or shut down watering mechanisms until the soil dries. This reduces water waste and takes the guesswork out of watering the lawn.
While Sprinkler heads may not seem as fancy as a smart controller, you may be surprised by the level of technology that has gone into the newer models. This component alone can help provide a low cost solution for micro irrigation and water conservation. In some cases these heads can even sense when they are broken and shut off automatically, rather than gush water. If you are looking to increase effiency on a budget, our Coral Gables sprinkler gurus can show you what a difference sprinkler heads can make.
