Efficiency and convenience are crucial for any irrigation system. These characteristics ensure that your sprinkler system delivers water where, when, and how it should — no more, no less — without any frustration or fuss. Still, designing and maintaining an irrigation system that does its job with ease and minimal waste is often easier said than done. Smart irrigation systems allow home and business owners to utilize cutting-edge technology in the pursuit of healthier landscapes, and these four tools are a great place to start.
1: Smart Irrigation Systems Start with Impeccable Design
Does your property’s irrigation system use sprinklers? Drip emitters? A combination of the two? The most efficient irrigation systems utilize the right kind of delivery system for the surrounding conditions. If your property is susceptible to high winds and features very little grass, a drip system might be the best choice. Conversely, landscapes with large grassy areas might be better served by traditional sprinklers.
2: Smart Irrigation Controllers Make Things Easy
One of the most important aspects of smart irrigation systems is automation; while old-school irrigation timers will do the trick, modern controllers have many more convenient features. Today’s smart irrigation controllers allow for smartphone and smart home integration, easy scheduling, and app-based solutions that make watering your yard as easy as ordering a cup of coffee.
3: Weather Sensors Eliminate Guesswork
Another helpful innovation for smart irrigation systems today is the wide range of weather sensors available. Wind, rain, and ice sensors can detect inclement weather that may have a negative impact on the efficiency and efficacy of your sprinkler system. These sensors can send a message to your controller, automatically skipping scheduled waterings based on poor weather.
