Around this time of year here in Texas the springtime rain has just about dried up and face-melting heat begins to burn its way into everything outside, including the lawn. To keep all that beautiful, green grass alive — the easy way — arm your sprinkler system with a sprinkler-control unit like the Rain Bird EC 9.
You can program one of these control units in about five minutes and adjust it anytime. The unit hooks into each sprinkler head and divides them up into areas. It can control the amount, duration, and what day and time of day each area gets watered. This nice setup’ll keep you from having to move hoses around or stand in the yard with a hose in your hand.
The sprinkler system itself can be a bit of a hassle to install and hooking it up to the control unit can be a tad tricky, but the payoff is laziness in the extreme — and we support that.
Street pricing starts at $65.
