Looking to take your garden up a notch? Interested in conserving water?
Add a weather station to your automatic irrigation controller! For less than $100 you can add a rain, temperature and evapotranspiration sensor that will shut off irrigation when it rains and automatically adjust watering based on the daily local temperature. No more wilting plants during a hot spell, excessive watering on cool days, or redundant watering on rainy days. There are wireless and wired versions, and some can sync to your smart phone so you can track and control your irrigation on the go.
Pictured here is the wireless Hunter Solar Sync weather station with a convenient gutter mount installation.
