Irrigation Management

Irrigation Management

National Tree & Garden Company’s irrigation management program makes water conservation a top priority for your property.

Irrigation management and water conservation is one of the most important but overlooked areas of a comprehensive landscape plan.

National Tree & Garden significantly improves water management abilities by using leading-edge CAD and GPS mapping tools to create an accurate site map of your property complete landscaping attributes and their onsite location. Attributes include turf square footage, trees, ground-cover, water valves, meters, timers, and irrigation sites, as well as drainage, lighting, structures, and paved areas. Additional site map overlays may include systematic watering and fertilizing schedules, and recent water component or system renovations.

Irrigation system analysis

We conduct a site walkthrough and inventory to identify and document all irrigation system components, including clocks, controllers, piping, sprinklers, valves, back flows, and quick couplers. A detailed list of existing irrigation and scheduling problems is then generated for each water controller station, followed by specific recommendations to correct each issue. When fully resolved you can expect to see a measureable drop in water usage, with no negative visual impact on your property.

Water schedule management

Our Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditor performs a California Department of Water Resources (DWR) water audit to determine water use and establish a baseline efficiency for your existing irrigation and water control systems. Detailed water controller schedules are then generated based on a peak evapotranspiration (ET) rate of 7.00 inches per month (100%) for each watering zone located on your property.

Water usage reporting

Installation of a Rain Master iCentral web-based water management system allows National Tree & Garden to control water usage throughout your property, which can then be compared to your monthly water bill. Any discrepancies between the two can reviewed promptly and appropriate corrective actions implemented.
