Smart Water

ET Controllers
It has been estimated that most plants in the American West receive as much as three times the water they need. Overwatering is the No. 1 cause of premature plant death, and it creates polluting runoff, causes rot and mold to structures, creates liability risks and results in high utility bills and waste in a state where water is at a premium. As an environmental landscaping company, we help our clients use water wisely to maintain the health of their landscapes and conserve valuable water resources.

One way we accomplish that is by installing ET (evapotranspiration) controllers.

ET controllers represent the leading edge of irrigation control systems. Integrating weather satellite data, wireless communications and detailed information about a particular landscape environment, the devices bring unprecedented precision to automated irrigation. ET controllers operate irrigation systems at maximum efficiency so that they deliver the right amount of water, where and when it is needed.
With an ET controller, our clients save up to 50 percent on their water bills, which translates into hundreds of dollars a year and “green” technology that pays for itself quickly.

Water agencies in Santa Barbara County and across the nation spent seven years testing ET controllers before they were introduced to the market. Enviroscaping President Lalo Mora was one of the testers. An irrigation expert who has taught classes at the Green Gardner Program in Santa Barbara and worked with the Goleta Water District on water reclamation projects, Lalo is the local manufacturer’s representative for the WeatherTRAK ET system, and the company’s designated troubleshooter for Santa Barbara County. The bottom line? No one is better qualified than Lalo and Enviroscaping to give you the best in ET technology.

IRRIGATION
Water – and the right amount of it – is crucial to the health of any landscape. At Enviroscaping, we bring thorough and informed thinking about water and irrigation to every project, plus the knowledge and skills to provide the most effective, most resource, and cost efficient custom irrigation systems available.

With years of experience behind him, and having taught irrigation at the Green Gardener Program in Santa Barbara, Enviroscaping President, Lalo Mora brings unparalleled expertise to every aspect of designing and implementing irrigation systems.

No two landscape projects are the same, which is why every one of our irrigation systems is designed and installed to meet the individual needs of our clients. We incorporate misters, sprinklers and/or drip lines into our systems, depending on the mix of plants, the type of soil and terrain, and the amount of sun, shade, wind and other climate elements that define the site. We build retaining walls and design anti-erosion elements into the landscape, all to ensure that the water the system delivers gets used, not wasted, and contributes to the beauty of a long-lived and healthy environment.

We also have our phones on 24/7, so you can rest assured that no irrigation or water-related problem will go unattended to. It’s simple: Should a problem occur, we’ll be there. Just call.

Evapotranspiration (ET) controllers combine weather station data, satellite communications and the Internet to provide the most precise and efficient automatic watering possible.
