Despite a good amount of rainfall the last few days, we're still in a significant drought, with our drought rating listed as EXCEPTIONAL on the USDA Drought Index (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/). That's like a DEFCON 1 rating, the highest possible- the maximum level on the scale !!!
Landscapes make up an estimated 70% of a homes water using during the summer months, and summer is just around the corner. So we'll soon be entering the summer months, and we're already facing maximum drought conditions. Aren't you alarmed yet?!
As drought becomes increasingly more common throughout the world, the investment in smart water systems is on the rise. Does your landscape irrigation system respond to daily weather factors in order to fine-tune water use and minimize the need for supplemental irrigation? If not, it's time to invest in some SMART IRRIGATION. Ask me how.
