Smart scheduling is what we're known for - let's dive in!

Let's Talk About Smart Schedules!

Dynamic schedules like Flex Monthly or Flex Daily can feel a tad scary when coming from traditional fixed schedules, but we promise there's a method to our madness. 


Flex schedules promote waiting until the soil has had a chance to dry out before watering. This way, your lawn is watered only when needed - not just on whatever reoccurring day of the week is convenient. We take information you provide like your plant type and sun exposure, pair it with weather data, then determine when your zones need to run, and how frequently.


Here are some more things to note about smart schedules:

  • They allow for the soil moisture in your zones to deplete slightly before watering is needed.
  • They typically water less frequently and for longer durations.
  • There are no established day/dates with Flex schedules. Scheduled dates may change based on the forecasted weather.
