Take Control of Your Controller
Are you aware that between October 1st and 31st we lost 35 minutes of sunshine? Throughout the fall and winter seasons we will lose even more sunshine each day. While it's a subtle difference, your plants do notice the change in daylight. Even though it can still be hot outside, plants start preparing for winter and, as a result, aren't as thirsty.
Having an automatic sprinkler controller
does not mean that you are watering your plants efficiently. A controller is only as efficient as its watering schedule, which must be kept up to date. This is a critical time to change your watering times as the days become shorter and plants no longer need the amount of water they did during summer.
For those customers with Water Budgets it is helpful to refer to your monthly water bill, especially as weather fluctuates throughout the year. As weather changes, so does your Water Budget. By staying within your Water Budget on a monthly basis you are using water efficiently throughout your home, both indoors and outdoors. You'll enjoy the most water savings during fall and winter.
