Adjust Irrigation with Weather ChangesYour landscaping will need less water as the weather cools, even in the absence of rain. It's a good idea to re-program your irrigation system monthly. If that sounds like too much work, you might want to consider a "smart controller". After programming in basic information such as zip code, plant and soil types, it uses data from historic weather patterns, current weather sent from local stations, and/or temperature and moisture sensors to adjust the watering times. This can save effort and oh-so-valuable water.
