Water MANAGEMENT

Landscapes are over and under watered regularly due to improper watering schedules. Improper watering causes soil nutrient loss, weaker, disease susceptible plants and shallow rooting. Hardscape, like asphalt, fences and buildings are damaged. Mold and fungus are promoted in constant wet conditions with no drying out periods. Landscapes are especially over watered during summer and fall resulting in significantly increased water bills.

What does it do?

L

Dynamic Alerts

As schedules are being developed, dynamic alerts prevent over-under watering. Various alerts keep weather demand, landscape demand and run-off limits in check.

L

Online Reports

Each month’s schedule is posted to the online reports to show savings and progress. Easy to read charts and tables summarize the analysis down to simple facts.

L

Site Map

Knowing the location of various landscape elements and which valve waters which area is critical for water management. Site maps are within close reach while the schedules are being developed for quick reference.

How Does it Work?

Setup

The location and landscape characteristics (such as plant, slope and soil type) are setup through the quick and easy online setup. Using the location information the schedules are checked to fit climatic conditions. Similarly using landscape characteristics the schedules are made suitable to any landscape combination.

Starting Points

Using schedules developed in previous months as a starting point during new schedule development speeds up the process. Making minor adjustments rather than starting from scratch saves time and effort.

Z

Meter Readings

Periodic meter readings are used to calculate savings and verification of the schedules. Reports show the recent period and year to date savings. Schedules are verified using meter reading data to ensure that the schedules are correctly entered into the watering equipment.

t

Soil Probing

Problem areas identified by the alerts should be further tested using a technique called soil probing. By inserting a soil probe deep into the soil the moisture level can be measured. The schedules are then fine-tuned to achieve even better results.

Landscape Quality CONTROL

Declining curb appeal and expensive plant replacements can be prevented by early detection of landscape defects. But consistency in quality inspections is difficult to achieve without a formal quality control process. Historical data tied to well defined inspection areas and preset priorities are required for comparable results.
