Going through a major remodel and I am redoing my front and backyards completely.
In terms of plantings, my current plan is to do the following:
Front yard is going to be a combination of drought resistant grasses, shrubs and shading trees.
Back yard is going to have a lawn, fruit trees, shrubs.
My current plan is to ahve lawn on sprinklers and everything else on a drip system.
A couple of newbie questions:
1) Does it make sense to have one 16 zone system or two 8 zone systems (one for the front and one for the back)?
2) Drip irrigation system - can we use Rachio support it or not? there seems to be a lot of questions about it.
3) Do I need to think about anything on the sprinkler side or drip irrigation side to setup the zones? (i am new to landscape stuff too, do I decide on this upfront? or when I setup the rachio?)
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments.
