Smart Water Management
Landscape irrigation consumes 58% of urban water, and sites can be overwatered by as much as 300%. While water rates are rising by an average of 43% across North America, the real cost of overwatering is property destruction, water runoff and liabilities – which can be significantly higher than water bills.
Smart water management is at the heart of The Budd Group’s Green Solutions. A well-designed irrigation system will minimize cost while delivering the correct amount of water to plants and turf to promote vigor and health. To help you start saving water, our smart water management program includes an audit of your existing irrigation system and the conversion of the old system to a more efficient system.
