Our mission is to design, install and maintain irrigation systems that will consistently perform in top mechanical condition and help save water. Further, our focus is on best-management practices to allow plant material to thrive. All properties are unique as conditions vary from property to property. Drainage, soil makeup, level of sunlight penetration, plant palette and more are unique challenges our properties face. Our carefully trained veteran technicians seek solutions that will address the specific needs of the properties we serve as we work hard to provide a friendly customer experience.

Water Conservation Project

As we focus on reducing our footprint on our planet, several states have passed laws tightening water efficiency standards, with other states soon to follow. As the Irrigation Industry moves to meet these objectives, Outdoor Irrigation Management is introducing water saving products in all our new system installations beginning this year. These products also available for existing systems, help protect water supplies by consuming less water, which in turn also saves our customers money.

Please contact us at 888-336-4999 or email us at service@outdoorillumination.com to get a free estimate for how we can retro-fit YOUR existing system to one that helps conserve our most precious natural resource.

Best of all, these upgrades can be done over the winter with no disruption to your property.
