Jul 9 RainMachine Smart Irrigation System 96 2
The story goes like this: It's summer time, and it's damn hot out there, 90 to 100F everyday. about a month ago, all of a sudden we discovered that all of our lawn/grass are TOASTED, simply TOASTED like dry hay (that's probably why our rabbit came over, cause they love eating dry grass, I realized) and we realized someone TURNED our sprinkler system OFF and it wasn't watering for who knows how long, almost desTroyed our entire lawn. Either our gardener, or someone in the house (except me of course, cause I never touched the watering system) turned it off cause Spring was raining pretty heavily and our grass were overgrown for the Spring months, and never remembered to turn it back on etc... So, I decided to upgrade our sprinkler control system to something more 2017
