Today’s weather-based Smart irrigation technology is much more water-wise than aging irrigation systems built 10-15 years ago. That’s because Smart controllers can monitor the weather, current soil conditions, evaporation, and plant use to determine when and how much water is needed, based on real-time conditions of the site.
Winter drought effects can be quite severe, leaving trees and plants highly stressed. Pine needles turn brown and fall off, plant leaves curl up and drop off, and plant roots beneath the frozen ground surface dry out, because they can’t absorb needed moisture from soil.
Green cities are rapidly becoming the way of the future, with many social, economic, and environmental benefits. So, what makes a city green?
Regenerative Landscapes is thinking long term, using methods that improve soil conditions that are sustainable for future plantings, and that will play a major role in restoring our environment for years to come.
Maintaining a landscape with remote irrigation is powerful and it begins with a real-time text alert on a Mobile app.
Looking to implement an ESG strategy – here is a list of best practices and things to look for as your organization creates a comprehensive program.
Property owners across many sectors use various water sources for irrigation. The most common fresh water sources are rivers, reservoirs, lakes and groundwater. Other reliable water sources for irrigation may come from a well, a cistern (rainwater catchment), or a pond on property.
Underground leaks within your irrigation system cannot be seen, so they can be difficult to find. However, above ground there will be obvious signs that something below ground is leaking or has broken.
Whether it be freezing winter conditions, torrential spring downpours, or blistering hot summer days, your plants and landscape need irrigation that is fine-tuned specifically to current weather and soil conditions. It’s called smart irrigation.
Baseline, the leader in smart irrigation control technologies, is pleased to announce that the designers of the National September 11 Memorial (9/11 Memorial) in New York City have selected Baseline’s BaseStation 3200 controllers with Baseline’s patented soil moisture sensors to control all irrigation at the Memorial and Museum complex. “Everyone at Baseline feels honored to […]
