For example, I have one zone that’s just buffalo grass. I set this zone’s plants to be ‘trees’ so that the zone, without any rainfall like what is the case for us for the past couple of month, doesn’t water more often than about once every three weeks.
Whenever any rain comes down, this zone stops being watered, until the next summer’s heat wave, automatically by the Rachio controller.
For another example, I have another zone that has zoysia grass. I set this zone’s plants to be ‘shrubs’ so that the grass ends up being watered only once every other other week.
Again, whenever any rain comes down, this zone stops being watered most of the time too,
For a third example, I have another zone that has flowers in it. I set this zone’s plants to annuals. This zone waters every 2nd or 3rd day at the moment during the heat, but, the amount of water (time of watering) is very small.
