Please excuse my ignorance as it will become obvious from my question. I am not in the irrigation business, but I recently was daring enough to develop and install a 7-zone home sprinkler system-with the exception of the timer. I realize that many, if not all of you, install or use controllers well beyond my budgeted price range, but I hoping I could solicit your professional opinion on an efficient and cost-effective controller within my specified spending limit. If possible, I wish to buy a timer that will incorporate and allow scheduling flexibility for 3 drip zones (trees, garden, and flower/shrub bed), in addition to the 4 regular lawn sprinkler zones. Any advice or recommendations you may have, and are willing to divulge would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help.
