Greenwise Water & Landscapes will be featured in the Monterey Home Expo this weekend at the Monterey Fairgrounds! Come by and visit our booth in the Salinas Room, where we will be offering free customized ROI calculations for greywater and rainwater systems! Find out your specific payback period, which is based on seven different factors!
Check your latest issue of "Let's Go Outdoors!" and find a mention of Greenwise Water & Landscapes. We'll be there, November 7, providing free classes on greywater and rainwater systems. Come join us! Sign up with the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District.
All indications are for an El Niño this winter. And... by the looks of things, it's going to happen. Nature provides, but will you be ready to accept the bounty?
So, what will you do with all that rain? The average person will let it wash over their roof and driveway and exit via the storm drain. From there, it will disappear into the ocean or into a costly water treatment facility (sponsored by you). Sure, along the way, your landscape will get that long awaited drink of water, and hopefully several drinks over the entire winter season. But, when summer comes around again, where will that water be? Gone.
Why not retain those winter rains on your property and use the water in the summer - when your gardens really need it? With a rainwater catchment system, designed and installed by Greenwise Water & Landscapes, you can!
"But rainwater systems cost money, and there's no return-on-investment like there is for, say... something like solar panels."
We hear that all the time. But the truth is, there is an ROI for a rainwater harvesting systems. But, you must first make the decision to have a year-round, well-watered garden (or lawn). Suddenly, there is a cost to do nothing, and an ROI becomes a reality.
So, how do I compute an ROI for a rainwater system?
Good question. The fact is, ROI for rainwater catchment systems are complicated to compute, and they aren't made easier by the tiered rate structure we have. (Point-of-order: tiered rate structures promote water conservation, which is a good thing.) Other factors that make ROI computations difficult and "end-user/property-specific" include available catchment area, desired irrigation area, plant type, evapo-transpiration zone, historical rainfall averages, historical water usage, and potential storage capacity.
That's too complicated for me! What do I do now?
Let Greenwise do it for you! Provide us with a few simple pieces of information and we'll run the calculations for you! You can get started right now, by completing a no-obligation New Client Survey.
What you'll get from Greenwise is a cost estimate for your new rainwater catchment system and how long it will take to pay for itself! Imagine... after the payoff period... you'll be maintaining your lush (not brown) gardens for free! Nature does provide.
