What a difference a week makes. Our cold, wet spring ended and now we are in an early heat wave. It's been a long off-season with no concern for irrigation or water costs, but the warm, dry weather smacks us in the face this week. 

As water costs have risen significantly over the past decade, we have been focused on Water Conservation. Water conservation has become a critical landscape management tool to help save water and save money and PLM is a leader in conservation in the Pacific Northwest. As we integrate our operations to our range of services that we offer to our customers in Seattle, water conservation is an enhanced offering to our new customers here.  

Weather-Based Irrigation is one of the water conservation strategies that has the greatest return on investment. We have promoted weather-based irrigation for years in Portland, but the capital cost to convert was cost prohibitive for many of our customers. When Weathermatic developed their subscription-based model, it eliminated the capital cost for conversion. With this change, it has made the cost to convert very affordable and we have now installed over 750 systems in Portland over the past three years.  

A majority of our customers in Portland have adopted Weather-based Irrigation as it is the most cost effective water management tool available to save you water and money. We are excited to bring this service to Seattle. 

Last year, we were featured in Landscape Management trade magazine, explaining our weather-based irrigation initiatives. Check out the article here.
