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.
After decades of little or no effort globally to protect and conserve Earth’s most precious, finite resource, it’s more critical than ever that we do everything in our power to reduce water use to sustain life as we know it to survive and most importantly, not waste water– both indoors and out.
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.
In times of drought, above ground sprinklers aren’t the most efficient way to irrigate a parched landscape. Much of the spraying water will be lost through evaporation before it even hits the ground.
There are many types of turf grasses, and some grow and thrive better in different regions of the country, depending on climate.
There are several things that can cause common irrigation pressure problems in a sprinkler system. Some of them are easy to identify and can be resolved above ground, but some problems below ground can be more serious and will likely require costly repairs.
Maintaining a landscape with remote irrigation is powerful and it begins with a real-time text alert on a Mobile app.
