Leaves are changing, are you?

Top 4.3 things you should be doing in October

1 - Landscape Lighting…. Still one of the fastest growing segments in the landscape industry!
It’s getting darker earlier, so get those demo kits out! Demo kits sell jobs. When a client pulls into their driveway and gets a taste of how landscape lighting transforms their property, they are sold then and there. No longer is the question…will they install lighting? It is…how many lights will they want?

2 - Promote fall installs.
While most contractors have run out of steam, you are just getting your second wind! The irrigation season ain’t over yet!! Remember - fall is for planting; there is still plenty of work to be had. Consider end of season specials or start booking next year now!

3 - Dust off the compressors
It is winterization time again. Make sure they’re operating properly and all the fluids are topped off. Test all the air hose lines and make sure the hose reel lines are operating properly.

4 - Commercial contracts...in October???
Yes! Start prepping next year’s contracts with your account managers. While your competition is thinking about fall clean ups, your prepping to score the next big contract.

4.3 - Don't get left in the dark!
Reread #1 and contact us at Atlantic Irrigation to help with your landscape lighting needs. Fixtures, lamps, wire, transformers, demo kits and the expertise, we have it all!

Project Profile - Facebok & Baseline Systems

The roof of the new Facebook building, about 70-feet up, offers a winding walk through nine acres of greenery. This walkway sits above the marshlands of Menlo Park, California, not the big city. But, Goler says, it feels a lot like the elevated railroad line that now serves as a park on the West Side of Manhattan. “It’s a half mile loop,” she says. “It gives space to think.”

Design: Russell D. Mitchell & Associates
Installation Contractor: Valley Crest

The Facebook green roof is a 9 acre park on top of the new corporate campus building. Mature trees, plantings and landscape features make you forget that you are on a building as you look out over San Francisco Bay. Two BaseStation 3200 controllers run the campus, one on the roof and the second on ground level. The green roof controller operates 190 irrigation zones from a single POC interfacing with 25 soil moisture sensors. The light weight soil depth is no more than 8" deep in most places making it difficult for the soil to hold water. The sensors are used to maintain a desired moisture level to ensure plant health. The controllers are connected to BaseManager and integrated with the building management system through BACnet Manager.
