How can I limit the amount of water I use to water my garden ?
There is a myriad of ways to limit the amount of water you use to water your garden, including but not limited to, using a watering can instead of a hose to water your garden, adding a thick layer of mulch to prevent water evaporating from the surface of the soil, and mowing less closely and less frequently in dry periods. Indeed, perhaps one of the best ways to reduce the amount of water you use in your garden is to ensure watering occurs only when completely necessary.
The best way to ensure watering occurs only when completely necessary is to install a smart irrigation controller, such as a reticulation controller, in your home. A reticulation controller will allow you to tailor how much water your garden requires based on its unique needs, and all at the touch of a button. So, you can save the environment, as well as yourself time and money, at your convenience.
How do Reticulation Controllers work ?
Reticulation controllers are connected to rain sensors which are placed around your garden. When the rain sensors detect rain, they automatically alert your reticulation controller which then pauses or stops watering your garden. This technology prevents you from overwatering your garden and limits the amount of water you use which in turn lowers your water bill.
A reticulation controller also monitors the local weather forecast and automatically adjusts the amount of water based on the predicted rainfall for the day. You simply connect your reticulation controller to the internet via the user interface app which conveniently links to the local weather forecast and saves you water by adjusting the water output for that day.
Indeed, with wi-fi technology, a reticulation controller will also allow you to take care of your garden no matter where you are in the world. Simply connect to the app via your mobile phone or tablet and you can monitor and control your water usage at the touch of a button. This provides you with peace of mind that your garden is being looked after and that you are conserving water, whether you are in the comfort of your own home, at work or relaxing on your sun lounger at the beach.
Moreover, you can also link your reticulation controller to Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, and command her to look after your garden for you. Simply say “Alexa, ask Rainbird to list my irrigation zones,” and Alexa will reply, “Ok, Zone 1 Front Lawn...” Or ask Alexa “to ask Rain Bird to water my front Lawn for ten minutes,” and she will also dutifully reply, “OK, I started Zone 1 Front Lawn for 10 minutes.”
