The ABCs of Landscape Watering: Let’s face it—that little plastic box on the side of your house that controls the watering of your yard can be intimidating! However, it is important to know how to work your irrigation controller because outdoor watering is often the largest water use for a household. This class will teach you how to properly water the plants and grass in your yard. You will also get hands-on experience by learning how to program an actual controller in class. Take what you learn and apply it to your yard for a healthier-looking and more water-efficient landscape. Thursday, October 19
Smart Controllers: If you leave town in the summer or hate going out each month to change your irrigation controller, you may want to look at purchasing a smart controller. Smart controllers take into account local weather conditions (such as extreme temperatures or rain) or soil moisture levels (how wet the soil is), and water accordingly. Learn the ins and outs of this new breed of irrigation controller and see if it is right for you and your yard. Thursday, October 26
Time: All class times are from 6:30 - 9:00 PM | Location: All classes are held at the Southeast Regional Library Assembly/ Shakespeare Room, 775 N. Greenfield Road Gilbert, AZ 85234.
