Could your Property Benefit from an Irrigation Audit?
Water is a basic necessity for all living things including our landscapes. The amount of moisture available to plants is critical to a great looking landscape. But enough is enough. Chicago precipitation has been exceedingly heavy. Rainfall totals have reached 7.63 inches through June 27 th , the fifth wettest June on record. May rainfall totaled 8.21 inches, the wettest ever. Besides creating havoc for our mowing and service schedules, too much moisture can be as detrimental to our plants as not enough. Your irrigation system is designed to provide supplemental watering during times when natural rainfall is not available. It’s critical that your system is programmed, maintained and monitored properly to avoid over-watering.
With over 70% of the Earth's surface covered by water, it's easy to forget what a precious resource water is. During the rainy spring season, it's easy to think there is just too much water. Yet, conserving water is an imperative for all of us and the best way to ensure that water is being used optimally is with an Irrigation Audit of your property.
