How is your lawn looking lately? Does it look lush and healthy, or does it seem to be a little more parched than normal?
As we previously discussed, the drier than average winter has contributed to the Denver area being classified as “abnormally dry” for this point of the year. With the lack of snowfall and potential for a dry spring and summer ahead, water conservation efforts aren’t just a nice idea – they’re a necessity.
One way to make sure your plants get all the water they need without using too much is to utilize a smart controller for your irrigation system. Smart controllers, such as the Rainbird smart controllers Lifescape installs, make watering your landscaped areas easier, wiser, and more affordable.
Rainbird’s smart controllers include the following key features, which work together to provide the right amount of water at the right time. These features include the ability to input information such as a zip code, allowed watering days, and the plant and soil types for the zones in your yard, as well as the slope and amount of sun exposure in the areas. Once that information has been entered, your irrigation system will only provide water to your landscape when it needs it. Rainbird’s smart controllers also take into account rainfall amounts and calculate how much watering schedules should be adjusted to avoid over or under-watering. This increases efficiency and saves between 30 and 70 percent more water, all with the EPA’s stamp of approval with a WaterSense label.

As warmer weather is approaching, it’s time to make sure your irrigation system is helping you use water as wisely as possible.
