Start Smart Irrigation Month With Water Conservation


Irrigation
There’s an old tale about a giant with a leaky faucet. In his home, the tale goes, the giant’s faucet has a terrible leak. Night after night, the leak drips and drips. And since it’s only one drop at a time, the giant thinks nothing of it. “Why, that’s just one drop,” the giant says, “and there are many rivers, lakes and oceans.” Soon, however, that one drop becomes many, and the giant’s home begins to fill with water. In a few short weeks, the water rises so high that the giant begins to fear that he might drown. So, in a panic, he opens his huge front door and out gushes all the water. Only then, drenched from head to toe, and hearing his leaky faucet dripping, does the giant finally realize what he’s lost.   More

Winterize Your Irrigation Systems

Offer Cold Weather Opportunities All Year


Miscellaneous
About two years ago at a trade conference, I was talking with a landscape contractor who, up until that point in time, only specialized in design/build in the residential market. Either he knew something that we didn’t, at that time, or his timing was impeccable. Two years ago, he decided to begin to offer maintenance to his clients.   More

The Right Seed for the Right Need


Landscape
Ever wonder why “the other man’s grass is always greener”? Maybe it’s because his landscape contractor planted the right seed for the landscape’s need. Choosing the right grass seed can make the difference between a lawn that thrives and one that needs constant attention—or worse, complete replacement when the plush lawn you thought you had planted turns brown and dies.   More
