Rain Bird, Military Makeover team up to update Kansas veteran’s landscape

June 21, 2017 -  By

Rain Bird partnered with the Lifetime TV mini-series “Military Makeover,” which is designed to give back to veterans. Rain Bird helped create a water-efficient landscape for U.S. Army veteran Zeke Crozier and his family in Overland Park, Kan. While serving in Afghanistan, Crozier was injured and still suffers from equilibrium issues and PTSD.

“Sponsoring a Military Makeover episode was a great way for Rain Bird to support a military veteran while sharing tips for designing today’s modern irrigation system,” said Ray Peppiatt, marketing manager for Rain Bird’s Consumer Products Division. “We pride ourselves on the fact that our products save water and money in the pursuit of beautiful, healthy landscapes. Being involved with this show gave us the opportunity to educate millions of viewers about how they, too, can enjoy the benefits of a water-efficient irrigation system.”

Landscape contractor Tom Horn and his team from All-n-One Outdoor Solutions in Jefferson City, Mo., installed the Croziers’ new irrigation system, which features Rain Bird’s 42SA rotors, 1800 Series sprays with HE-VAN nozzles, drip irrigation and a ST8-Wi-Fi smart irrigation timer.

The first episode aired June 9. The second episode will run on June 23 and re-air on June 30, and the final episode is scheduled for July 7, re-airing on July 14.
