Install digitally controlled outdoor irrigation system with rain sensor

Why

It’s easy to overwater.  Letting your timed sprinklers run regardless of the weather, or turning on your sprinkler and forgetting about it are just two ways.  This doesn’t make our yards extra luscious.  It just wastes water.

How

WaterSense® certified controllers use the current, local weather conditions to determine whether watering is required or not.  Other controllers are available that sense rain (but not heat and evaporation).  Or, instead of getting a new controller, save even more water by just not watering your grass.  When the weather is particularly dry, the grass will go dormant and turn brown.  When it rains, the grass will turn green again.
