When it comes to underground irrigation products, Orbit Irrigation is recognized as the leader in the Do-It-Yourself industry. Customers look for the "Orbit" name.
Orbit has sponsored the sprinkler system, landscape lighting, and temperature control (thermostats) of a home in the Utah Valley Parade of Homes.
Remember back on May 21 of this year, we added a post about a hands-on installation that our team performed?? Well, this is it. The sprinkler system went in with ease (thanks to PVC-Lock and Eco-Lock), the landscape lighting is beautiful, and the thermostat isn’t just a box that controls temperature, it’s masterpiece in style and function.
The house is ready for touring. The yard is landscaped with sod and beautiful … Read More

My Midsummer Night’s Dream
With the very top of summer sliding past,
I often wonder, what’s up with my grass?
It’s brown, it crackles,
It raises my hackles,
And I despair
That it is beyond repair.
It would be a midsummer night’s dream,
For my grass to appear a lush green,
Just in time for my soiree
Where we will play a lively round of croquet.
So dearest Titania, send me a fairy

“The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.”

Another answers: “I think one of us must be a plant.”
Okay, lame jokes aside, how do you know your plants are being consistently watered whether you are at home or away? One great solution is a hose faucet timer.
