Over half of the urban water used in the U.S. is for landscape irrigation, with much of that water lost to evaporation. It's best to use native landscaping or xeriscaping that is drought-resistant, and reduces or eliminates water, energy, and chemical use—but if irrigation is needed, use permanent “smart” irrigation controllers. Smart controllers use evapotranspiration (ET) data based on local temperature, humidity, sunshine, wind, and other factors, along with information on soil, plant type, irrigation type, and slope to calculate the amount of water transpired by vegetation and evaporated from the soil. The controllers then provide the amount necessary to maintain the health of the plants.
