As another Smart Irrigation Month comes to an end, it is a good time to reflect on irrigation projects and consider what is ideal versus what is reality.
Smart Irrigation Month is an Irrigation Association (IA) initiative to promote the social, economic and environmental benefits of efficient irrigation technologies, products and services in landscape, turf and agricultural irrigation. As an active, certified professional with the IA, North of South Landscapes has been a supporter and promoter of Smart Irrigation Month for years. We work to educate our clients and inform them on how to improve their irrigation efficiency and how conserve water through their landscape while improving the health of their landscape.
In the past year, we have seen and been involved in many successful irrigation improvement projects. We have also seen brand new installs that needed repairs, adjustments, or re-installation within the first weeks after construction. If you are considering a landscape/construction project, it would be in your best interest to consult with a landscape/irrigation professional to ensure your project will not create problems in your existing landscape or irrigation system. Below are some photos and descriptions of some not-so-smart irrigation issues that could have easily been avoided.
Let North of South Landscapes help you avoid any of these costly mistakes in your landscape projects. Give us a call today.
