Irrigation Controller- Rain Detector?

I need a controller where different zones be controlled by the Rain-detector. Here's my situation... I want the lawn to be controlled by the rain-sensor. But, I have flower-boxes that do not get rain, and I still want these to activate not dependent on the rain-sensor. Help?

Hunter Industries has controllers which will do that.

Maybe contact Hunter. Have someone talk to you. Or email.

I'd suggest going to the local sprinkler supply store but they sometimes seem confused as to the functions of the controllers. There's a wide selection. But they might know.

A dead simple way to achieve this is to run a separate common wire to the zones you want to always be watering. The new wire would bypass the rain detector.
