Yes, it has been a record setting wet spring, but summer and the irrigation season is just around the corner.
As you know, we have been focused on Water Conservation for over a decade. With water costs rising dramatically, water conservation is a critical landscape management tool to help save water and save money. Weather based irrigation is one of the water conservation strategies that has the greatest return on investment.
