Mount Hawthorn, Western Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/09/2014 -- The Royal Randwick Racecourse located in Australia is known for the world class 6 level grand stands. It was recently renovated and now has an increased capacity at the venue. It is spread across 200 acres of land and has about 15 indoor and outdoor spaces where one can organize exhibitions, races, trade shows, dinners, corporate days and more. This huge place with a good management team needs to look the best all the time. Since, there is no specific time when a space in within the racecourse will be leased it needs to look at its best throughout the year.
This makes it necessary to also maintain the lush green lawns that keep the place looking fresh and green. The lawns in such places need adequate amounts of water that will keep it fresh. But, care has to be taken that it should not be over watered. This makes it look pale yellow and takes away the freshness of the grass. The premises being huge, it is close to impossible for a person or group of people to move around watering the lawns. A water irrigation system may simplify the task of supplying adequate amounts of water checked by water flow meter at regular time intervals.
However, this method too may sometimes lead to over-watering of the lawns. In order to prevent this situation, it is better to install soil moisture monitors that will monitor the moisture content of the soil and will state appropriate amount of water that may have to be supplied. A device called the Hornet that performs soil moisture monitoring has been installed at this Royal Randwick Racecourse NSW.
The Hornet being a reliable device that can act as a controller for the irrigation system has made it easy to control the water being supplied over a huge lawn area. It has been implemented to save the extra amounts of water that may get wasted and affect the lawns. It feels good to here when such big public groups come forth and make use of devices that will help them contribute little towards the development of the environment. By installing the Hornet, the officials at the Royal Randwick Racecourse have made sure that they keep their surroundings fresh and green and avoiding the wastage of water.
