Water is becoming increasingly important in California and it is changing the way we irrigate. Improvements in heads and drip lines along with new design techniques, sensors and wireless app controls will allow you to save a great deal of water while keeping your landscape lush and healthy.
Today’s Irrigation is All About Technology
Smart-connected controllers provide access to your controller from any web enabled device, adjusts watering based on weather, connects to irrigation sensors and alerts you of any leaks or valve issues. All of this technology can reduce water usage by more than 30%.
Rotors, Sprayers and Nozzles
Today’s irrigation equipment is designed to place water only where it is needed and reduce the flow of water to conserve any wasteful runoff. Rotors can be adjusted to eliminate any overspray and reduce water usage by up to 20%. Sprayers come in a variety of sizes to match height and range to the application and nozzles can be switched out all equipment so nothing goes to waste.
Drip Line Irrigation
Drip or micro irrigation is becoming increasingly important and new technology provides solutions to target dense or sparse planting, narrow beds and small places. Using drip heads you can improve reliability and provide more precise valve control and you can even install eco-mat irrigation under ground for the ultimate in water efficiency.
Weather and soil moisture sensors can be easily connected to smart controllers to allow for daily weather adjustments or irrigation shut down if the soil already has enough moisture. This not only helps to significantly reduce water usage but also maintains optimal conditions for your plants so they reach their full potential.
Replacing lawn with artificial turf is becoming increasingly popular to reduce water usage and maintenance but it can also be used for specific purposes such as putting greens, dog runs, shaded areas, etc. With artificial turf we can create amazing landscapes and living spaces that stay green all year and provide long-term cost savings benefits.
