FAQ

How does this service save us money on our water bill?2019-03-28T13:46:00-06:00

Most irrigation systems, including all sprinklers installed before 2007, use a cheaper spray nozzle with a goal to “water quickly”. This creates a number of problems for your lawn and your water bill.

  • 70% of lawn watering is wasted on runoff and atmospheric loss (worth hundreds of dollars a year!)
  • Much of that waste is based on the efficiency of an irrigation system and its nozzles
  • Watering too much or too little throws off the eco-system in your lawn and increases fungus, disease, turf damage and more

We can help save money on your water bill by:

  • Finetuning your system to distribute exactly what your landscape needs, when it needs it
  • Replacing nozzle heads with highly efficient rotator nozzles reduces water waste up to 70%
  • Continuing to monitor for inefficiencies

Can I get a Free Irrigation Services Evaluation/Estimate?2020-06-18T08:23:23-06:00

The majority of our services allow our sales team to offer a free lawn evaluation by spending time on your lawn to gather information, measure your outdoor space and hear from you, with no obligation to purchase. Because irrigation services require state licensing, we are not able to send a sales team member to speak on the topic or give pricing information. This service must be provided by a licensed Irrigation Specialist.

The good news is that Irrigation Audits often come with a rebate by local municipalities! Check out the other FAQs to see information on rebates in an area near you!

Hear from one of your neighbors…

We initially hired Emerald Lawns for support with our lawn. On our initial consultation, I advised our consultant that we were having issues with our sprinkler system. The lawn tech advised Emerald was building out their sprinkler support, and Brad was the guy to help us. Brad is amazing. Very friendly, straight forward and easy to understand. He assessed the system, found a leak and a few broken sprinkler heads and described in detail what needed to be fixed and what the final cost would be. An few hours later, our sprinkler system was fixed and set with a schedule Brad advised would be optimal for our lawn without running up the water bill too much. He even took the time to label our zones, something that was not done when the sprinkler system was installed some 10 years ago. Since Brad visited, the sprinkler system has been working like a champ and I would recommend him without hesitation.
