July is Smart Irrigation Month

Is your irrigation system wasting water?

Did you know that 9 billion gallons of water per day is used for residential outdoor water use? With as much as 50% of that water wasted with inefficient irrigation systems and watering methods, you can see how much room there is to conserve our most precious natural resource – fresh water.

Did you know as much as 25,000 gallons of water can be wasted in one six-month season by having just a single broken sprinkler head?

At Conserva Irrigation of North Atlanta, we can adjust, update, and maintain your irrigation system to make it more efficient. Call us today. (678) 921-3684

Slow The Flow - if water is applied too quickly, it can cause the water to run off of the landscape and into the street.
Check Sprinkler Heads - ensure that sprinkler heads are properly placed and set-up so they aren't irrigating the sidewalk

Use Low Volume Irrigation - use drip irrigation, micro-sprinklers, or bubbler irrigation for planting beds and narrow strips of vegetation
