Brown Spots in Olathe

Brown Spots in Olathe

This spring everyone’s yards were green with out a sprinkler system. Spring is over so its time to reset your sprinkler timer for keeping the brown spots in Olathe out. Smart sprinkler technology has been used in the industry for the last 6 years. I am talking about the Hunter Solar Sync. The Hunter Solar Sync is a type of rain sensor that measures evaporation happening in your yard specifically. Other smart technology gathers this information from the local weather station. Smart controllers don’t measure micro climates around the city. If you are using the weather stations senors it is not going to be as accurate as the Hunter Solar Sync.

One tool to help with those pesky brown spots

The Hunter Solar Sync measures Evaportransporation (ET). ET is the amount of water that the sprinkler system has put out on the yard and the amount of rain minus the evaporation rate. The Hunter Solar Sync works on a three day running average to calculate the amount of run time to Keep the Green Alive! This is a fantastic idea for the gardeners and yard enthusiast alike. This is a scientific way to keep the guess work out of how much watering your yard needs. Give R&S a call and talk about adding one of these sensors to your Hunter Controller today!

Brown Spots in OlatheWhat is causing the brown spots

Brown spots in Olathe happen when the sprinkler system is running the same amount of water it was in spring. Why are the brown spots in Olathe still happening in your yard? A sprinkler system is designed to act as natural rain. On the other had, if the sprinkler at your house was installed with a small imperfection in the sprinkler design, this could be your problem. Sprinkler heads are designed for perfect squares but property lines are not always square.

Another reason brown spots happen are due to lawn diseases such as grubs or fungi. One way to combat the Brown Spots in Olathe is by turning up the sprinkler run time. In contrast, if you increase the amount of water of your sprinkler and the brown spots darken/grow then its a lawn disease problem. During the summer time is the time we will see if there are any small mistakes in the irrigation design. So give R&S Lawn and Sprinkler a call today to set up an appointment for a summer time tune up to assess your sprinkler to see weather it is a lawn disease or a sprinkler issue!
