Residential Surveys and Smart Landscape Evaluations
A Smart Landscape Evaluation is a free service designed to assist residential, multi-family and business customers with identifying inefficiencies and water waste as well as water savings opportunities. Single-family participants can expect to have technicians review indoor fixtures and evaluate the performance of the site’s irrigation system. At the end, the participant will receive a list of recommendations and a proposed watering schedule.
For multi-family and business customers, an outdoor audit will be performed and participants will receive a report outlining site specific irrigation and maintenance recommendation as well as plants alternatives designed to reduce water waste and use. To enroll please contact (866) 883-1332.
