Irrigation to Solve Water Issues

We haven’t had to deal with drought like many other areas of North America – in fact at times the opposite – but that doesn’t eliminate the need for good water stewardship.

Lawns and other homeowner use can account for up to 70% of municipal water use in urban areas like the GTA during the summer months. During extended dry periods – even of a week or ten days – we’re often tempted to immediately over-water. Multiply that tendency by the number of homeowners and it’s clear how such behaviour can drain municipal water reservoirs.

• General guideline: during the height of summer weather, a lawn requires about 2.5cm (or 1-inch) of water per week.

Any manual system of watering – whether it’s an irrigation system or an old-fashioned lawn sprinkler – will need constant adjustments. Some weeks we’ve been deluged while other weeks such as earlier in the summer, we saw very little rain in the Toronto area.

Smart Irrigation Solves The Problem
A new, smart water system will automatically adjust for real-time environmental conditions, including

• Temperature
• Rainfall
• Humidity

Effective design
A properly designed irrigation system minimizes runoff and water wasted on paved or other hard surfaces. If you’re using a typical lawn sprinkler, this can be hard to achieve. If you have an older sprinkler system, changes in your lawn and landscaping over time can make the pattern of spraying inefficient.

The old-style solution of a sprinkler and a hose results in a lot of waste and in our constantly changing climate, constant adjustment. Today’s smart sprinkler systems take all the guesswork out of the equation and water your lawn
