Everyone strives to have a lawn and garden that is the envy of the neighborhood. One of the most important steps in achieving a lush, green, and inviting lawn is to water with even coverage. Many do not have the time, or desire, to adjust, move, and control water hoses throughout the day. Luckily, automatic sprinkler controllers take care of that for you. Timers allow you to water your lawn any time of the day.
Whether you are relaxing inside your home or vacationing in another country, your automatic sprinkler timer will properly care for lawn. The following should give you a bit of a guide to follow when selecting the best sprinkler timer.
The first step in deciding which timer to buy is to strategize coverage. Many yards have areas that need to be watered more than others, and your timer can be customized to meet these needs. It is helpful to divide your lawn into zones, taking note of which areas need more or less water to determine how long you want to water that zone. Another important consideration is which time of day you want the sprinkler system to come on. These zones should all be connected with a single valve. You can then find a sprinkler controller that will be able to handle the number of zones you have specified. From there, you can decide on additional features that will make your sprinkling system more effective.
