Smart Irrigation Control Systems Save Water And Provide For Healthier Plants

SMART Irrigation Control Saves Water, Promotes a Healthier Landscape

drought-tolerant-landscaping-bay-areaSo-called “smart” irrigation control systems save water and provide for healthier plants. Isn’t it time you considered upgrading the way you water your property?

Residential and commercial irrigation has undergone enormous changes in the last 15 years. Technological advances, such as the ability to respond to site conditions, have provided property owners with much more control over their water usage.

Today’s smart systems irrigate plants, flowers and grass more directly, with less water. The result; you enjoy robust plants and a more beautiful overall landscape, at a lower cost.

For new clients, Petalon Landscape Management recommends upgrading to a smart irrigation system. The initial investment quickly pays for itself and equips property owners and managers with a valuable tool in case drought conditions return to northern California.

Major Benefits of Installing a Smart System

Three ways a smart irrigation system saves money while making your life easier:

  • Adjusts to the weather. Controllers monitor conditions such as soil moisture, humidity, temperature, wind, and even the depth of a plant’s roots to automatically adjust water amounts and run times. Higher-end controllers can even incorporate information from off-site weather stations.
  • More efficient sprinklers. Old-fashioned sprinklers often waste water. Tiny droplets are carried away by wind or evaporate before reaching the ground. Modern sprinkler nozzles use water up to 20 percent more efficiently by releasing larger, heavier droplets that are more likely to soak into the ground.
  • Remote management. Download an app to your cellphone so that you can monitor and adjust your system’s watering times and amounts when you are far from home. Remote management via an app is particularly handy when you are on vacation, or when weather changes unexpectedly.

Petalon’s service area includes the Bay Area cities of Fremont, Mountain View, Walnut Creek, Danville, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, San Jose, Palo Alto, Livermore, and Pleasanton.
