You’ve probably heard that buying and installing a smart irrigation controller for your yard is a good idea. But, upon looking at them, you also might be wondering if the cost and effort are worthwhile.
It’s understandable why you’d question the value of such a device. After all, recent history is littered with electronics that promised much but delivered little. Allow the experts from North Georgia Lawn to detail the benefits of using a smart irrigation controller, so you make an informed decision.
Once set up, smart irrigation controllers are simple to use. For many, getting the controller completely configured for your yard’s needs might be confusing, which is where having a professional installation is a great idea. But, once the controller is up and running, you don’t need to do much at all. The system monitors for rainfall and other factors which shift from one day to the next, calculating exactly how much water your lawn and other plants need, changing watering times accordingly.
Your lawn and beds get the optimal amount of water. Simple irrigation timers just let the sprinklers, soaker hoses, etc. run for a set amount of time and that’s it. Sometimes that might be enough water, but other times it could be too much or too little. If you want lush, healthy landscaping, you need to water everything optimally week after week, based on conditions. Even if you’re away, the controller won’t water your yard when it’s raining.
There’s a wide array of smart irrigation controllers on the market, each with their own set of features and price points.
