Integrated Irrigation Management is the holistic approach to managing your irrigation system and watering practices. By using proper horticultural practices combined with technology, we can manage the efficiency of your irrigation system to achieve the highest levels possible. Understanding the soil and plant material being irrigated as well as using automatic scheduling engineers to correctly program your irrigation controller will apply only the water needed to replace the water being used with as little waste as possible. This program may require upgrading irrigation equipment to newer more efficient products as well as a more sophisticated controller. As part of the system, flow sensors will be utilized to monitor the operation of the system 24/7 to ensure that the scheduled amount of irrigation is being applied and helps eliminate unnecessary waste due to broken sprinklers and stuck valves. The goal of Integrated Water Management is to irrigate responsibly delivering the proper amount of water to the plants to achieve the healthiest plant material while using the least amount of water. Not only is this program more sustainable and environmentally friendly it will result in water savings as well.
