Eco Irrigation's Guidelines to Conserving Water

  • Water soil in a way that strengthens roots. 

    • The deeper the root, the more tolerant to dryer conditions.

 

  • Use drip irrigation. 

    • Drip irrigation is more efficient and prevents evapotranspiration.

 

  • Incorporate compost in the soil. 

    • Adding 1 part compost for every 3 parts soil can hold over four times the amount of water than soil without compost. 

 

  • Match the precipitation rate f0r every zone. 

    • This helps us regulate how much water is being put down.

 

  • Separate zones efficiently.

    • Eco separates zones based on head placement, sun exposure, slope, and overall landscape differences.

 

  • Install check valves.

    • This helps to prevent water from leaking out of sprinkler heads.

 

  • Incorporate weather predictive irrigation controllers.

    • These affordable clocks have the power to automatically adjust watering times based on rain, wind, temperature and moisture. 

 

  • Water at night. 

    • Watering at night prevents evapotranspiration

 

  • Incorporate water efficient sprinkler nozzles. 

    • Simply adding these nozzles can save 30% of water use. 

 

  • Let the grass grow. 

    • With the grass being longer, it is able to protect itself from the sun's rays.
