What does water management mean to you?

Landscape Professionals

Paul Fraynd
Sun Valley Landscaping
Omaha, Neb.

“Water management is treating water as the precious resource it is. From intentional and intelligent irrigation to managing and utilizing rain water in the landscape, it’s our role as landscape professionals to be stewards of the environment and teach our clients about the benefits that these practices provide.”

Bryan Stolz
Winterberry Landscape & Garden Center
Southington, Conn.

“This year, that means managing drastically higher rainfall totals than usual. “In the Northeast, we are above average this summer, including several large storms. We managed it through increased attention on plant health care and lawn disease management. We also trained our mow crews to document washouts while on-site to help sell a larger number of small repair enhancements. It has also involved cross training irrigation techs who were less busy doing system repairs to other tasks so we can retain them.”

Industry Consultants

“Water management to me means the efficient and responsible use of water, not too much, not too little, just right. Water is money. Treat it like that.”

Phil Harwood
Grow the Bench
Grand Rapids, Mich.

“Using technology intelligently to deliver water with precision and without waste.”

Kevin Kehoe
3PG Consulting
Laguna, Calif.

“Providing a service that reduces client water costs by matching service clock management with plant selection.”

Jeffrey Scott
Jeffrey Scott Consulting
New Orleans, La.

“It means offering the very best in irrigation service in house and collaborating with a good installer if needed — water management is a very profitable and win-win-win business when done right.”
