A dash of technology, with a sprinkle of conservation

Rachio is like a puddle-free sprinkler that takes care of the yard.

There’s technology for technology sake. And then there’s technology for conservation sake, and it can start in your own backyard. Rachio is a smart, puddle-free sprinkler system that taps into seasonal changes, weather prediction, and even soil absorption rates, all scheduled from your smartphone. And with water conservation trending higher than a Kardashian, it’s a timely example of function + function.
