We provide excellence in our work, down to the very last detail.

Being green / environmentally friendly can save us and property owners money.

Plants can be diverse in their need for water and fertilizer / nutrients and their needs can vary by the time of year.  Granular fertilizer is commonly used throughout the Vegas valley at many properties. 

  

  • It is typically is activated when it gets wet and the Vegas valley gets rain a few times a year. Drip irrigation systems do not always activate fertilizer which means when it is activated it can create a feast of famine / all at once scenario for the plants and the nutrients are not always activated when the plants need them.


  •  The fertilizer tends to sit on the ground or near the surface for an extended period of time and can get blown away by landscapers’ blowers or in high winds. This means it either gets thrown away or goes into storm drains or areas it was not intended to go.

There is an alternative.

If nutrients are delivered to plants through the irrigation system there is a good chance that less fertilizer is needed and possibly less water because more nutrient rich water is being provided to plants.  The tanks the fertilizer is in is typically hidden from view in "standard" looking valve boxes that we are use to seeing like the one to the left.


Many properties pay more per gallon for water the more water they use so minimizing the use of water in the higher tiers can save customers money.  


Consider the time savings of not having to apply granular fertilizer, the possibility of reducing the amount of fertilizer and water and hopefully minimizing the feast of famine scenario since this type of application provides.

The cost to hedge trim does not need to be a large  portion of properties landscaping expenses. Labor, equipment and disposal costs multiple times a year; year after year. It also produces noise pollution and the dust and debris that gets kicked up annoys car owners who are sometimes parked close by. The trimmings that are produced have to be disposed of.  Republic Services operates the only landfill in Clark county and they do not recycle green waste. There are a couple of spots in the Vegas valley that accept green waste but the time it takes to go to and from their facility is usually cost prohibitive with smaller loads. 

  •  The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) has a number of rebates they offer. Many people know about the money for grass and On Time Landscaping is a Water Smart Contractor.  The SNWA says “A water smart landscape with very dense plantings uses less than half as much water as a lawn.” Source 


  • The SNWA also has rebates / coupons for “smart” irrigation clocks, car washes and pool covers.
