July is Irrigation Month!
“Smart” irrigation technology is essential to maintaining our beautiful Santa Clara County landscapes. Whether your business property is big or small, multiple campuses, HOA, turf and landscape or golf applications, there are many ways you can get “smart” about irrigation.
If you are a homeowner looking for ways to conserve water, have a more sustainable landscape, and cut your water bill, Irrigation Month is the time to take stock of your current irrigation practices and systems.
The Ultimate Water Wise Checklist:
Get your irrigation system checked in early spring. (If you missed this spring, do it now!)
Checking your system yearly can save you thousands of dollars, and you can feel proud that you are doing your part to conserve our precious water resources.
Install a wi-fi or web-based irrigation controller. Companies such as Hydrawise, Bluespray, and Postscapes offer complete wi-fi irrigation control systems, 24/7 support, unlimited start times, history usage reports and more, will decrease water usage. Some allow for remote monitoring and control zones from your Android or iOS phone using wi-fi or ethernet connectivity. Each product has something a little different to offer, so please check them out online. (We do not officially endorse these brands)
Check out “Water – Use It Wisely”. This resource is full of techniques you can practice at home or in the office. The site even offers educational games you can practice with children. Teaching your children water conservation and how things grow is a lesson that will stick with them for years to come, and provides them with a sense of connection to how things grow, amongst other health benefits.
We’re here to help! During the month of July, our Bayscape Account Managers are on stand by to answer your questions about irrigation technologies.
