Watering the lawn may seem like a simple, yet essential task, but experts claim that when it’s done incorrectly, it can be a massive waste of both time and money. Not to mention freshwater is a precious resource, and it’s only going to become more so as our population continues to skyrocket. Manual watering is an archaic, wasteful process that should be frowned upon. If you want to help humanity, and save money in the process, you should consider using smart irrigation technology to make watering your lawn an efficient, hands-free process. That’s the message of Smart Irrigation Month.
It’s no coincidence that Smart Irrigation Month is in July considering that July is traditionally the month of peak demand for water for lawns and gardens. Smart irrigation systems, which use weather data to automatically change settings, are available at many irrigation stores and can not only help control water distribution, but also make best use of available resources and save money in the long run. They are especially good for their self-reprogramming technology, which adapts to weather changes, as well as meeting any local restrictions or vacation schedules.
Smart irrigation is one of the keys to ensuring that humanity doesn’t run into a water-crisis in the near future, not to mention it removes the need for you to sit out in the hot sun and water your lawn by hand. The potentially hundreds of dollars you save in the process is a nice bonus as well. Do the world and your wallet a favor. Read more about this story here.
