Use smart irrigation controllers. Modern irrigation controllers can save thousands of gallons a year by adapting to soil and weather conditions and not overwatering. Many cities offer rebates to homeowners associations and individuals for converting to smart irrigation controllers and also for converting green areas to desert landscaping.Truer words were never spoken :-) Thanks Jim!
"You can program a timer the first of January and not have to worry about it for the rest of the year unless something happens," said Jim Potts of Caretaker Landscape and Tree Management in Gilbert. "The controllers check temperatures, humidity, it does it all itself. Use that technology. The initial investment is pretty high, but the return on that investment is quick. Not to mention all the water it saves."
