I second this request. I have some areas with hard clay soil and I’d love some definitive (automated) way to know that I am watering to the desired depth. Previous owners watered too short and too often and therefore my grass has very shallow roots… I’m trying to change that!

p.s. If you do make moisture sensors, please make them so they cannot be stolen easily (e.g. wired to central box, hidden beneath the soil, etc.)
