Rain Bird Releases Its 2nd Industry White Paper
Rain Bird Corporation has announced the release of its 2nd industry white paper, which focuses on providing insight, suggestions and solutions for incorporating water-efficient landscapes at the residential level. Titled A Homeowner’s Guide To Water-Efficient Landscapes, the paper serves to educate the general public on the issues and best practices as they relate to water conservation in the lawn and garden. Available in downloadable form on www.rainbird.com, A Homeowner’s Guide To Water-Efficient Landscapes continues the discussion of the role of efficient residential irrigation in the face of growing global water scarcity, as was examined in Rain Bird’s first water paper, Irrigation for a Growing World.
“Most discussion of water conservation has focused primarily on practicing water conservation techniques inside the home. As a result, most homeowners are well-schooled when it comes to conserving water indoors, but not as savvy when it comes to curbing water waste outside the home,” said Rain Bird’s director of corporate marketing, Dave Johnson. “This paper is an excellent primer for communicating the importance of water conservation using landscape irrigation technology and practices. It will assist homeowners in choosing the best options for incorporating water efficient landscapes.”
A Homeowner’s Guide To Water-Efficient Landscapes continues the discussion of the important issues raised in Rain Bird’s first white paper by focusing on the role that homeowners play in conserving this resource through efficient irrigation. The paper begins with a brief overview of the world’s water crisis as addressed in more detail in the first white paper, Irrigation for a Growing World, followed by a closer look at the history, benefits and essentials of water conserving landscapes in Chapter One. Chapter Two and Three provide readers with a detailed look at the basics of efficient irrigation and profiles some of the key technological water-saving advances in residential irrigation. The paper concludes by stressing the importance of maintenance and management as it relates to keeping water conserving landscapes efficient. The paper’s content is supported with numerous case studies, charts, graphs and additional sources of information
