Why they acted
“Our watering regimes are based on historical and current evaporation rates and future climatic conditions. The probes assist with the fine tuning of the watering regimes to prevent watering beyond the root zones.”

How they did it
Soil moisture sensors were trialed to improve the efficiency of its irrigation practices and overall turf management.
Soil moisture technology allowed the City to monitor the soil profile. Previously, they could only determine how much water was being applied, not how much was actually being used by the turf.
