The key to efficient irrigation is controlling how much water is applied to your landscape, when and for how long.

That can mean changing the way you think about watering your landscape, as well as the way you do it. This may mean altering your irrigation schedule to best meet the needs of your new plants as well as learning about different irrigation system types.

New irrigation technologies work alongside your new water-conserving plants to make sure they get just the right amount of water for your plants.

One of the effective ways to do that is with weather-based, or "smart" controllers are irrigation clocks that adjust irrigation run times in response to environmental changes.

Rotating sprinkler nozzles can save up to 6,600 gallons per nozzle over a five-year period. Drip irrigation can also save a lot of water; flow rates for drip irrigation systems are measured in gallons per hour versus the conventional irrigation, which measures gallons per minute.
