Lawn Watering: There’s an App for That

By Jeff Rogo Government Affairs Director
Wouldn't it be nice if your mobile device could tell you what your apartment community’s lawn needs? Maybe even send you a message to turn off your sprinkler system if it rains? That would be especially helpful as the temperature rises and we are in some of the driest months of the year. The folks at Tampa Bay Water informed me about a new app called Smartirrigation Turf. The app was specifically created to help urban turf irrigators in Florida and Georgia water their lawns more effectively and efficiently. 

Smartirrigation Turf is one of four apps created through a partnership between the University of Florida, the University of Georgia and the US National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The app generates irrigation schedule recommendations based on real-time weather and short-term forecasted data to better meet your lawn’s water needs in a given period.  If you irrigate on a regular schedule, this will help you conserve water and minimize nutrient runoff caused by over-watering.
