A rain gauge (and ideally a weather station!) is essential for a healthy garden. Knowing the exact amount of rainfall your garden receives can make gardening easier and even save you money by reducing the cost of your water bill! By knowing how much rain falls on your plants, you'll know exactly how much moisture your soil absorbs, enabling you to make informed decisions about your gardening habits.

Soil is great at filtering out any pollutants brought to your garden by rainwater. Wherever you live, rainwater is a great way to water your garden and save you money on your water bill. By getting a rain gauge and monitoring the soil with a pH meter, AcuRite garden sensors can help you optimize your garden and lawn health.

Plants require sunlight (ultraviolet light) to grow, although this differs from plant to plant. From partial or direct sun to shady environments, always read the recommendations (and our UV Planting Guide) for each specific plant before deciding on its permanent location in your backyard. The AcuRite Atlas monitors UV index and light intensity, helping you identify the best plants for your location.

Different plants require different amounts of sun, and it can vary from direct sunlight to partial sunlight. For example, a tomato plant needs at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight a day. Always read the recommendations (and our UV Planting Guide) for each specific plant before planting in its permanent location. The AcuRite Atlas is equipped with a UV index and light intensity sensor, helping you identify which plants are best suited for planting at your location.

Plant success and garden health significantly depend on weather conditions. Because weather varies by region, it's important to know when to plant both plants and flowers based on your climate. You can gain insight into your hyperlocal weather conditions with the AcuRite Atlas weather station.

Whether you're working on an herb or a vegetable garden, AcuRite garden sensors can help you optimize your garden and improve your soil conditions. Knowing the exact weather and soil conditions (both pH information and moisture readings) in your backyard gives you the tools to monitor changing conditions in real time. Rain gauges help you understand how much rain fell on your garden and lawn, while soil moisture meters keep you updated on the amount of moisture your plants are receiving. For knowing optimal planting conditions, soil pH meters keep you aware of the acidity of your soil. Once you know your hyperlocal weather and soil conditions, then you can identify ideal flowers, herbs, plants, and vegetables that will grow well in your region!

Usually, once or twice per week would be good, but you can use an AcuRite digital rain gauge to help you determine just how much water your garden has received!

You might wonder why your backyard rain measurements are essential for your garden, and home, but maybe you first need to better understand the various ways to measure rainfall.
