Conservation at a Glance

Water, it’s our most precious natural resource and also very expensive when it’s used to support modern-day landscaping.

In the United States, lawn and landscape irrigation contributes to 2.9% of national water usage. In New Jersey, water consumption during the summer almost doubles over the usage of winter months. New technologies, including remote controls, smart controllers, and weather stations can greatly reduce the costs associated with irrigating and maintaining lawn and shrub areas, while conserving water and preserving the environment.

Step 1

The first step is to repair failing systems. Contact an EDI specialist to come on-site to review current issues such as broken equipment, including heads and pipes, and review areas that are being over or under watered to assess the current system.

Step 2

The second step is to install “smart and remote controllers” that are implemented with on-site weather stations that can actually reduce watering costs by up to 50% depending upon your current irrigation system settings. How is this possible? Site-specific information that relates to the irrigation system and weather conditions are taken into consideration to create a new watering schedule every day. This new technology reduces water usage and saves money on service calls specifically made to adjust watering times for seasonal changes.

Step 3

The third step is to have an Irrigation Audit to determine the state of your irrigation system and develop a roadmap to improve performance and lower associated costs. By simply ensuring proper coverage, efficient equipment, and consistent upkeep and maintenance of your irrigation system, you can reduce irrigation costs, as well as water usage costs.
