When it comes to sustainability, the life of your landscaping is as significant as the initial design. But often it’s the design that gets the bulk of the attention from developers, grounds maintenance crews, parks districts and even private golf course groundskeepers.
Reprioritize, says Michael Chaplinsky, founder and president of Turf Feeding Systems—the fertigation system that attaches to any irrigation system. Professional Grade Fertigation systems are affordable for, parks districts, private golf courses, government agencies and even homeowners with substantially-sized lots are turning to Turf Feeding Systems for precision irrigation that combines water with constant delivery of nutrients resulting in a lush, green lawn with a bountiful root system to keep it strong all season long.
Golf courses, says Chaplinsky, have some of the most sophisticated irrigation systems in place and have been using fertigation for years. Some of the finest golf courses—Spyglass Hill, Pebble Beach and The Broadmoor in Colorado, Springs—have fertigation systems.
The City of Colorado Springs has 72 fertigation systems in use on more than 450 acres of parks, sports fields and landscaping citywide. City officials embraced fertigation when it became evident that they could drastically reduce the maintenance budget by using Turf Feeding Systems versus the labor involved in applying dry fertilizer and the fact that constant delivery of nutrients through the water system results in an optimum plant rather than sporadic fertilization spring through fall.
If your landscaping is stressed and not flourishing, it’s likely the result of inappropriate watering and lack of nutrients. When the two—water and nutrients—are delivered in combination, the plant absorbs nutrients simultaneously with the water for better benefit. It could be compared to working out versus being a couch potato.
After all, if your landscaping isn’t thriving and looks spotty and stressed, no one will notice that the design is interesting.
