what is smart
While saving water is a very important part of conservation, there is much more. Conservation is also conserving the beautiful and green landscapes that we already have. Turfgrass is not only beautiful to look at but is also a way to mitigate the heat-island effect and reduce energy consumption. Have you ever burnt your bare feet walking on grass? Didn't think so. Researchers have calculated that the front lawns of just 8 average houses provide the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air conditioning. This is something to think about, isn' t it?
Did you know that symptoms of under watering and overwatering can be very similar? Yellowing of plant material. Smart Irrigation replaces only the water the plant uses (transpiration) & water lost to evaporation. Together this is called Evapotranspiration (ET). Healthy turfgrass & plants absorb carbon dioxide and convert it to oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. An area of turf just 50 feet by 50 feet generates enough oxygen to meet the needs of a family of 4 for a single DAY (University of Georgia, Turfgrasses and the Enviroment 16-4)
the right people make the
The right people truly make the difference when it comes to Smart Irrigation Technology. As the adage goes, garbage in garbage out.
Smart Controllers have more inputs and are more complex to program. Because of that, it is imperative to have an irrigation professional who is TRAINED & CERTIFIED in auditing sprinkler systems so the correct Precipitation Rate (PR) can be determined per zone. A certified water manager can be invaluable to insure that the irrigation equipment selected is the most efficient and installed for maximum water uniformity.
where do i begin?
Have your property evaluated for water usage, potential water savings and payback expectations. A Certified Landscape Water Manager (CLWM) can determine how much water your property SHOULD be using.
