Free Landscape and Irrigation Evaluations


Studies show that many irrigation systems are only 20 to 30 percent efficient.  This means as much as 80 percent of the water used is actually wasted.  Irrigating a small lot will generally take between 10,000 and 12,000 gallons of water per month.  Over watering leads to an unhealthy lawn meaning increased disease and pest issues.  If you have abnormally high water usage or frequent lawn problems consider having an irrigation audit performed on your system and incorporating the changes suggested by the professional auditor.  Changes may produce water savings and a healthier lawn as well.
