Is poor quality water causing headaches for your property manager? It can affect your landscape aesthetics and cost you in labor, maintenance, and more.
Golf course communities are well known for their valued amenities and gorgeous landscapes. Property managers are challenged with reducing their labor and maintenance costs while maintaining the high standards of their guests and residents. When Landscape Architects design layouts for numerous homes with multiple hydro-zones, it is assumed that high-quality water and efficient emitters are used.
- Water Quality
Water used for the irrigation of Golf course communities and homeowners associations (HOAs) may be coming from the golf course pumping station, which often means average to poor water quality. Some have converted to reclaimed water for irrigation, but even those with surface or on-site wells may struggle with less than ideal water quality. Sprinkler nozzles, sprayers, and driplines are most efficient when supplied with high-quality water.
Those visiting a Golf Course community to view their next potential neighborhood are filled with excitement and high expectations. When emitters are packed with debris, they won’t achieve their designed flow characteristics—leading to uneven water distribution and less desirable landscaping. This could adversely affect membership, prestige, and property values.
