Welcome to Your Virtual Lawn!

Research and demonstrations have shown that the rain sensor, soil moisture sensor, and evapotranspiration based irrigation technologies save water.

This web tool uses weather data from the Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN). The station closest to your location will be selected. More information about FAWN can be found on their Website

Shortly after you enter data, you will receive results on the web page. Thereafter, you will receive an email every week with your site results using last week’s weather data. The results will include water volumes applied and not used, water stress days, and percent of water applied that was not used and weekly rainfall.

  • Currently, this tool is only for lawn turf and not for ornamental plants.
  • The tool allows you to select multiple irrigation technologies for comparison purposes.
  • Default values are available if you are unsure of a value.
  • All comments on the tool should be directed to Dr. Kati Migliaccio at klwhite@ufl.edu.
