Soil Moisture Sensor Controller

Soil moisture sensor controllers are placed below ground in the root zones of lawns and landscapes to determine if and how long to water. They are available as stand-alone controllers or add-on devices to existing controllers. They have been shown to reduce outdoor water use by up to 70% without sacrificing the quality or health of your landscape.
