July is Smart Irrigation Month and we've got a tip for using technology to do just that: water slowly. Smart technology can help you save money, conserve water, and keep your landscape looking great.
If water is applied too quickly, it can run off into the street or sidewalk instead of being absorbed into the soil and getting to the roots of your plant. Smart irrigation regulates pressure, ensuring water has a chance to soak into the ground.
Using a smart irrigation system with weather-and-soil-moisture-based controllers allows your system to automatically adjust the watering schedule based on conditions at your location. That customization can go a long way to lowering your water bill and ensuring that your plants don't get too much or too little water.
