Don’t Let the Notion of Irrigation System Changes Give You the Creeps!

The weather is changing and your landscape doesn’t have that unquenchable thirst for water as it did in the summer. October marks the time of year to make some or all of your irrigation system a ghost of the past.

For many people, the idea of change can be unsettling, scary, or downright harrowing. However, sometimes change can be good, as good as candy corn on Halloween! One of the things that can lead you into the light is making some positive changes to your irrigation system.

Irrigation systems are like children — they must be watched at all times to be sure they’re not getting into trouble or bothering the neighbors! With all of this in mind, October marks the time of year to make some or all of your irrigation system a ghost of the past. The weather is getting chilly and your landscape doesn’t have that unquenchable thirst for water as it did in the summer.

The SAWS Irrigation Design Rebate can provide you with cash for putting an end to individual irrigation zones, converting spray irrigation to drip irrigation in beds or even retiring your entire irrigation system in one fell swoop. Getting cold chills yet?

The process is simple:

  1. Schedule a conservation consult by calling 704-7283 or email consult@saws.org and receive a personalized report with a rebate estimate at the end of the consultation.
  2. Move forward with irrigation system changes and get them complete within 12 months of your first consult.
  3. Schedule a final inspection in the same way as the first consult and one of our friendly conservation consultants will come to your home to review all of the changes you’ve made and complete the final agreement.
  4. Four to eight weeks after the final inspection and approval of your hard work, you’ll receive an irrigation rebate check from SAWS. (Nothing scary about that! Hee Hee!!)

If you’re serious about these changes, consider our Landscape and Patioscape Coupon programs as well. Don’t get hung up on just the irrigation system — you can also remove 200 square feet of grass and replace it with friendly plants or a patioscape living area.
