Water-wise Wednesday Tip

This tip comes courtesy of Santa Clara Master Gardeners monthly tips and events.
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.
