We are all familiar with the crazy weather that Kansas City loves to give us. One day you are watering your yard while it’s 60 degrees and the next day your yard is covered in snow! But have you ever thought about how it is affecting your plants? Or your irrigation system?

Obviously irrigating your yard while it is raining or snowing can waste a lot of water and lead to overwatering. And having an irrigation system running while it’s snowing can be lead to frozen sprinkler heads. That’s where Heinen comes in. Heinen Landscape and Irrigation has been in Kansas City for over 30 years, is more than a little familiar with the kind of extra attention your yard needs during fickle-temperature Kansas City springs.

Heinen recommends and carries one of the best products on the market when it comes to custom watering schedule: the Rachio Wi-Fi Smart Controller. Rachio can be installed with any new sprinkler system – and often on existing irrigation systems. Their state of the art smartphone-based Rachio WiFi controller app gives you the power to adjust your sprinkler – directly from the palm of your hand.

As long as smartphone based controller is within range of you home WiFi, you’re able to access and control your irrigation system, from turning your sprinklers on and off, to setting delayed schedules to skipping  a watering event or zone. The Rachio controller also connects directly to the nearest local reporting office of the National Weather Service – so if rain or snow is in nearby, your watering schedule will be adjusted to prevent overwatering form happening.

Another great feature Rachio provides is customizable zones. Every area of your property is a little different – shrubs and trees need more water than grass, and sunny areas need more water than shady areas. These customizable zones ensure that every area of your yard gets the perfect amount of water.

Now, for a limited time only, Heinen Landscape is offering a FREE Rachio controller with each new residential irrigation system installation! Don’t let these fickle weather patterns ruin your property – call Debbie at Heinen at (913) 362-8439 and ask how Heinen can give you the greenest grass on the block – and a new Rachio WiFi controller!
