As with most equipment purchases, choosing the right trencher is more about your business than it is about the equipment itself. How many inches a machine trenches per hour is one measure of productivity, but that's only part of the story.
During his tenure as a landscape manager in California's Marin and
Sonoma counties, Tom Campbell noticed something alarming. The tremendous
overuse of water in landscaping made him jump into action and start a
new company dedicated to eliminating water in irrigation.
This is a huge amount of water devoted to a use that isn'considered a necessity in all circles. To make matters worse, experts estimate that as much as half of the water used for landscape irrigation is wasted due to evaporation, runoff, over-watering, and poorly designed systems.
Due to escalating water prices
and the drought sweeping areas of
the Southeast, Sun Belt states and
the West, people are tuning into
water-wise practices with more
interest than ever before. Water
issues can carry a variety of collateral
damage. When water gets
tight, the green industry is often
one of the first to suffer restrictions
that hurt business.

Here are people in the landscape industry with the uncanny ability to

“now” that will be sought-after “then.” At the time, these visionaries
might be derided as crackpots. Wrong. They have foresight.
