Drought conditions mean water use restrictions. The efficient use of water and sustainable landscape practices will be a major focus for commercial property managers for years to come. Bill Kennedy Landscape offers water management solutions, as well as irrigation maintenance to meet today’s and tomorrow’s water use challenges.
Water Management Service
Through landscape evaluation, water auditing, water budget projections, controller programming, water use monitoring and reporting; it is possible to reduce your landscape water consumption and save money! Irrigation system recommendations, landscape suggestions, and projections on the return on investment can also be provided. Upgrading to controls for larger systems and using internet access for scheduling allows your water manager to make changes to your system in an instant.
Irrigation Repair Services
BKL is a full service commercial landscaping company with an Irrigation Service Department who supports our commercial landscape maintenance operations. Experienced, trained and licensed irrigators and irrigation technicians perform routine irrigation system inspections to ensure that your irrigation is functioning as designed and fully functional. EPA WaterSense partner certified irrigation auditors can make your system as efficient as it can be, and designers can suggest changes to create a cost-effective, efficient and sustainable irrigation design developed specifically for your property’s plants and turf water needs using the latest innovations in water saving technology.
Irrigation Drip System Conversions
Drip irrigation is 95% efficient, and the conversion or incorporating drip irrigation systems into your landscape where water is more accurately targeted to the plant at a much lower rate and more efficiently than overhead sprays, only makes sense. We offer conversion from wasteful overhead spray (pop-up sprinklers) to efficient Drip Tube Systems. Most communities offer exceptions for the use of drip irrigation during drought restrictions — even to stage 4!
Control of Run-Off
Avoiding run-off water waste onto paved surfaces should be paramount to any irrigation conservation effort. BKL will work with you to review water waste through auditing and a review of the overall property, and make recommendations for changes to schedules or equipment.
SMART Irrigation Controllers
We do our best to avoid over-watering, and in a dry north Texas summer with most communities using drought restrictions, over watering is not the issue. Providing enough water to protect your investment of plants and foundations is important. No matter how efficient an irrigation controller’s watering schedule is, it has to take into account our changing weather – specifically evapotranspiration, better known as ET .
ET is the amount of water lost from the soil through evaporation plus the plant’s water loss (known as transpiration), both of which are dramatically affected by weather conditions. ET Managers uses current weather information and ET to apply water to the landscape only when it needs it. Some communities offer exceptions to the drought contingency plan when using ET Managers.
With this kind of powerful solution to irrigation management, ET Managers will work with almost any controller, converting a conventional irrigation system into a weather-smart system that adjusts itself according to accurate real-time weather data. When weather changes, the ET Manager will receive updates automatically every hour, scheduling water only when needed. The result: significant water savings, deeper root systems, and healthier plants.
