Smart Irrigation Systems


1) Drip Irrigation - delivers water right to the soil surface and the root zone. Much more efficient than spray heads.

2) Soil Moisture Sensors - probing the soil with either a manual rain sensor or one connected to a controller will allow you to adjust your irrigation settings for each zone you are testing.

3) Rain Sensors - when used with a Smart Controller they can overide the default settings in order to save water based on rainfall.

4) Smart Controllers are equipped with a computer that you can program that makes an ordinary controller a "smart" controller, helping reduce water usage and efficiency in delivery.

5) High Efficiency Nozzles - spray heads can be efficient for shrubs and lawn areas by using low precipitation rate nozzles.

 6) Rainwater Harvesting - use rain barrels or larger storage tanks so you can utilize the captured water during periods between rains. Raingardens and Bioswales use the natural runoff from a site to irrigate the plants.R 7) Permeable Pavers - capture water so you can either direct it back into the soil or into a RainXchange underground storage system where the water can then be pumped to use as you wish.
