Irrigation has been a big priority for many Texans, including those in the city of McAllen, Texas.
With more than 50 parks in the South Texas area, the city faced water quality and maintenance-cost issues.
However, Turf Feeding Systems installed a fertigation system in Jackson City/School Park and has launched a case study to document the savings and benefits of a sustainable parks program.
The program has been designed to reduce irrigation water and maintenance costs while improving the landscape quality at the same time.
Because the park is faced with high sodium in the irrigation water, a common problem in the region, the sodium builds up in the soil putting stress on the grass and trees.
The case study includes using Sodium Blocker, which is designed to treat the sodium in the soil and irrigation water.
Sodium Blocker is a liquid product that is mixed with the fertilizer and injected with the fertigation system to treat the entire park.
The case study will show before and after results as well as document the savings possible on the eight-acre park.
