Environmentally friendly solutions to common lawn care issues are available and actually quite affordable. Let the team of experts at Green Turf show you how you can address your lawn’s irrigation, drainage or lighting issues with an environmentally friendly approach.
Adjust your irrigation system as the seasons and weather change, or better yet, install a sensor that automatically detects rain or moisture. These devices are inexpensive and enable you to take advantage of the water without having to pay for it.
Ensure that the right amount of water is applied by using ET-based controls. ET-based controls automatically adjust watering schedules, based on evapotranspiration (ET), which can reduce water use by 20-40%.
New high efficiency nozzles provide more uniform distribution of water, eliminate overspray, use less water and reduce run off. A simple and effective way to be more environmentally friendly.
Rain gardens address the issue of heavy surface runoff in both a practical and aesthetically pleasing way by utilizing the excess rainwater to directly nourish selected plants.
Bioswales offer a way of dealing with heavy rainwater that has a low impact on the surrounding environment. They filter the water naturally through their use of native plants, improving water quality in the area for the long-term.
Rainwater Harvesting Systems
Rainwater harvesting provides the benefit of removing excess rainwater before it does damage, while collecting it for future use, saving you money on your future landscape watering. It’s a win/win.
Utilize rain barrels to prevent damage from excess water and provide extra water to use later. A little gift from mother nature to your garden.
Drip irrigation supplies water directly to plants’ root systems through watering either near to or within the ground, limiting water waste.
