What do you know about water conservation technology? Proper irrigation is vital for crops, landscaping, athletic fields, parks, and more. But all that water can cost a whole lot of money, breaking your budget and putting a strain on your bottom line. The good news is, we can help. Here’s how you can save money with smart controller technology.
What is Smart Controller Technology?
You want to get optimum performance from your irrigation system, which means watering the right amount at the right time. Sometimes you can get it right, and sometimes it’s a crapshoot.
Smart controllers utilize an on-site weather station to adjust irrigation run times on an as needed basis. Smart controllers also take into account the soil type, plant material, and historical climate data. Because smart controllers can “think” they can make irrigation run-time adjustments. They will allow the irrigation system to run more frequently during dry periods and less frequently on cloudy or rainy days.
Benefits of Smart Controller Technology
Saving money is at the top of everyone’s priority list, but so is using less water. Good thing those two go hand in hand. Using industry standards to install this state-of-the-art irrigation controller, you can take advantage of some of these benefits:

Whether you have landscaping in a small backyard or you take care of the grass in a giant sports facility, detecting a drainage problem can save you a lot of headaches. Here are three ways to identify a problem with your drainage.
#1: Pooling Water
If you have pools of water after it rains or after your sprinkler system runs, it could indicate improper drainage.
#2: Soggy, Squishy Areas
If your yard or field is soggy or squishy after irrigating, you might have a drainage problem.
#3: Soil Erosion
When water doesn’t drain properly, it can result in soil erosion. If you find fissures or depressions in the ground under your grass, the water probably isn’t draining well.
What Causes Drainage Issues?
There are many potential causes of improper drainage in a yard or a field. It can be anything from a high water table to a poorly graded surface. Other issues include bad soil, blocked runoff drains, and poorly designed landscaping and plant beds.
What Can You Do About It?
Drainage issues are often complicated to identify and rectify. Understanding soil, grading, the way different types of plants and grasses absorb water, how root systems can affect absorption, and how water moves underneath landscaping are all critical to correcting bad drainage. Your best bet is to work with a professional landscaper who understands water drainage and can help you get your field or your backyard back in shape.
Are you dreaming of a residential fountain, but don’t have the space? A pondless water feature might be just what you’ve been looking for. Here’s what you need to know.
What is a Pondless Water Feature?
A pondless feature works by recirculating the water without a pond. Think of a waterfall without a pond at the bottom or a series of rocks that create a fountain, but without a pool of water as its base. A pump takes water from a reservoir situated in or below ground and sends it up through the water feature where it flows back down.
What Kind of Pondless Systems Create Fountains?
There are endless ways to create a water feature with a pondless water feature. It’s only limited by your imagination. Whatever space you have is enough to create a water feature with this type of system.
What are the Benefits?
Fountains enhance your outdoor living space, transforming it from a backyard to an oasis. Water features create peaceful spaces enhanced by the sound of a waterfall or a babbling brook. They can fit any space, whether you have a small square of yard to work with or a huge piece of property. They are also low-maintenance and use very little energy to operate.
Adding water to your surroundings can bring peace and calm to your environment. A water feature or fountain is a great option for doing just that. If you’re interested in a pondless water system for your residential fountain, look no further than the experienced professionals at WP Law. Contact them today.
Everyone wants a lush, green lawn, but do you know how to get it and keep it that way this spring? We have some tricks of the trade to help you get the green lawn you’ve been dreaming of. Take a look.
Your grass needs water, but not too much water. Overwatering can lead to grass that isn’t deeply rooted, and that doesn’t have that dark green color. You need to evenly water your lawn with 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week.
To maintain your yard, you want to mow it high. When you cut your grass too short, it can invite pests in as well as allow the tips to yellow. Anytime you trim more than one-third the height of your grass, it is going to struggle.
Aeration is the process of making small holes throughout your lawn. The goal is to create easier access for water, nutrients, and oxygen to reach the roots. It also improves drainage.
Specific fertilizer products get specific results. Using the right fertilizer and lawn chemical treatments on your grass can help keep your grass green. It’s like giving your lawn a nutritional supplement.
