To mark Smart Irrigation Month, information provided for the “25 Ways to Save 25 [Percent]” program now includes additional water-saving tips and advice for golf courses and other properties.
Rain Bird, the Azusa, Calif.-based provider of irrigation products and services, has expanded its “25 Ways to Save 25 program” with additional water-saving tips and resources for residential and commercial irrigation sites, as well as golf courses and agricultural operations.
Rain Bird launched the educational program in May 2015 in response to California’s ongoing drought and water restrictions, in an effort to help Californians and others reduce their outdoor water use by 25 percent or more while still enjoying healthy, sustainable landscapes. Based upon Rain Bird’s guiding philosophy, The Intelligent Use of Water™, the “25 Ways” program offers practical, effective tips and advice drawn from the company’s 80-plus years of experience in the irrigation industry. Available at 25ways.rainbird.com, the resources can be used anywhere and by anyone who wants to improve their watering efficiency.
To mark July’s status as “Smart Irrigation Month,” Rain Bird has announced that the program’s newly expanded website now provides water-saving ideas in four distinct categories: residential, commercial, golf course and agriculture. The site also serves as an educational tool that irrigation contractors can use to help their customers learn about the latest irrigation technology and efficient watering practices.
“Smart Irrigation Month is now underway, and there’s no better time for each of us to reevaluate our outdoor water use,” said Alex Nathanson, corporate marketing brand manager for Rain Bird. “While 25 Ways initially offered residential and commercial irrigation advice, conserving water is truly everyone’s responsibility. By providing even more tips and resources for a wider range of applications, we’re encouraging everyone to work together and make a real difference.
“For more than 80 years, Rain Bird has researched, developed and tested water-efficient irrigation solutions,” Nathanson added. “25 Ways allows us to share our expertise and make the decision to use less water an easier one. By providing a number of practical options that anyone can implement regardless of where they live and work, we want to help usher in a new era of water efficiency and conservation.”
The Course & Grounds feature in the August 2015 issue of Club & Resort Business will provide an update on water-conservation measures that have been instituted by country club, resort and golf course properties throughout the U.S.
