Keystone Electronics – Helping Keep Your Lawn Green

Optimizing Water Usage

What keeps your front lawn that beautiful green during long, hot summer months? Water! Water, that more often than not travels through sprinkler systems to reach its final destination.  Sprinkler systems not only help keep lawns green but also provide much needed water to flower gardens and food crops. Typical sprinkler designs include a hosepipe that supplies water to a metal arm; this metal arm is placed on a rotating base enabling water to be thinly spread over a large area. Today’s sprinklers are often used in conjunction with electronic systems, such as digital timers and controllers, weather sensors, and even remote controls.  These electronic systems help to conserve water by optimizing the timing of irrigation and shutting off water flow when irrigation is complete.

Electronic sprinkler systems depend on a variety of components from Keystone Electronics including mounting brackets, fuse clips, fuse holders, and screws and panel hardware. With the support of Keystone agriculturalists, homeowners, and gardening enthusiasts can keep their plants and lawns healthy and green while still conserving water.
