Here is a link, which leads to other links of home brew and lower cost commercial irrigation controllers, most are TCP/IP http://forums.makezine.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=2074 .

Ware Brothers had a commercial product for several years which received reasonably good reviews, but the company was acquired and their product is no longer available.
