A network of weather stations broadcast solar energy, wind speed, temperature and humidity data to the ET Manager, while rainfall is measured onsite to pinpoint each site’s unique moisture conditions.
Imagine doing a load of laundry,
collecting the water from the
machine, and then using it to
water your trees. Imagine that
you’ve just finished taking a bath
and instead of letting the water go
down the drain as you normally
would, you collect it and use it
when you need to irrigate your
lawn. Water, especially potable
water, is beginning to run in short
supply and we need to find creative
ways to reuse it.

Weed and Pest Control
Crabgrass, Johnson grass, dandelions—such weeds can overcrowd lawns and pilfer air, water and nutrients that desirable plants need to survive and maintain a healthy appearance. Unchecked, weeds can completely dominate these plants, turning what could be a beautiful and verdant lawn into a wasteland of unsightly weeds.
Seventy years ago, there were approximately 150 million people living in this
country. Today, that number has more than doubled. The population explosion
has taken its toll on our nation’s water supply. As a result of increased demand,
many of our aquifers are at low levels, and wetlands throughout the country
have gone dry. A dilapidated water infrastructure has exacerbated the problem.
It wasn’t so very long ago that the water situation in many states had reached crisis proportions, resulting in the implementation of some of the toughest watering restrictions that had ever been seen.
WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE—It might seem that way, since much of our earth is covered in water, but we all know that water is an exhaustible resource and we must do our part to conserve.
Walking through a garden courtyard, you’re surrounded by sculptured fountains, a circular pergola and hand-carved limestone columns. Breathe deeply and inhale the fragrance of succulent roses that transport you to an era of the early Renaissance, where art and imagination combine exquisitely with function and design.
