Garden timers

Post  jkahn2eb on 3/2/2012, 9:09 am

Hey group,

Getting to the point where time is money and I shouldn't be spending 20 min each day watering. Any suggestions on a good automatic timer? I've read a number of reviews on Lowes and many have issues. Wondered if any of you had good suggestions. I need at minimum two settings and perhaps three - one for the grass and one/two for the garden. I have about 100 sq ft of garden.

We're going to invest in a drip system for our beds. If you do go with a timer, you might check out the timers used for lawn watering systems to see if they'd work for you.

I have a Rainbird timer. Probably really intended for lawns. The lawns, trees, and SFG are all on their own zones, which I can program to start and stop whenever. It has 16 zones I think, and cost about $50.

I had rainbird too. Never had a problem and once I studied the manual, it made sense programming it (nothing is user friendly to me)
