By: Emil Motycka – Rachio

Learn how to install and use a smart sprinkler controller. Make your lawn the smartest on the block and never water in the rain again. This class will help attendees maximize the benefits of smart watering technology to grow drought tolerant landscapes. Topics covered: relationships between soil, water, and plants; advanced hydraulics; irrigation equipment. Emil grew up in Longmont on a hobby farm—just a few modest acres of land, nothing too fancy. He loved getting his hands dirty and started mowing lawns in grade school in lieu of an allowance. By the time Emil graduated college, the once extracurricular activity had expanded from a few neighborhood customers to a business with a fleet of trucks and thousands of clients. Seeing firsthand how few people understood how to water their lawns, Emil joined Rachio as an early employee to help turn his expertise into easy-to-use software for homeowners and landscapers alike. Since 2014, Rachio has helped homeowners save more than 22 billion gallons of water and counting.
