Well my sprinkler system was not planned well to work with the Rachio Smart Features. In fact, I didn’t know Rachio even existed until recently. Anyway, I am limited to the number of zones so I made do with what is available. I have planters built around the perimeter of the house, and then away from the planters is grass. Inside the planters, there are small shrubs, plants, flowers, tomato, herbs, mostly edible vegetation, etc… and watering is via drip and bubbler heads. For the grass, I use rotor heads and fixed heads. In essense, within each zone, I may have drips and rotor heads together, mixed vegetation, and mixed soil. What I did was to convert a few rotor heads into drip manifold for the planters… I know… not an ideal irrigation design.
When it comes to programming zones in Rachio, how can I set it up to recognize this arrangement? I have thought of redoing the entire sprinkler system to separate planters with grass, but that is a major project. Does anyone have a suggestion how to establish an “average” watering schedule for my setup? It’s better to accept compromise in watering than having to redo the entire system. Thanks for your feedback.
