Keeping your garden flowering or producing fruit takes a combination of things, but adequate water is one of the most important. Plush, green lawns need attention from water too. Once you’ve done a quality job of watering your plants thoroughly, the roots will extend deep into the soil and provide both stability and durability for your lawn.

For instance, Bermuda grass needs 1-1.25 inches of water a week to keep its color during the summer – and more if your soil is sandy. What do you do if you don’t live somewhere which receives that amount of water from a natural source? You purchase sprinklers.

If you manage an equestrian facility, you are concerned about dust control. Equestrian instructors, trainers, and animals can spend long hours each day in an indoor arena and are dependent on clean air for optimum performance. Studies performed by the University of Colorado and Penn State University show that equestrian trainers are more likely to develop bronchitis symptoms if their primary work environment was an indoor arena as opposed to an outdoor arena. Dust from arenas contain organic and inorganic materials and can be a serious health issue for trainers and animals. *Even with this information though, only 60% of stables report using some method of dust control.
