What Mandatory Water Reductions Mean to Landscapers

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Thu, Apr, 09, 2015 @ 16:04 PM

CLCA-Riverbed-4-15-2015For the first time in California's history, Gov. Jerry Brown has imposed mandatory reductions in water use.  According to California.gov/drought, April snow in California was measured at its lowest level on record.

This dismal conservation rate is the lowest monthly figure since the State Water Board began tracking the data in July 2014." It appears that many urban Californians are attempting to ignore the drought.

How the Honeybee Decline Threatens Gardens and Food Supplies

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Thu, Apr, 09, 2015 @ 13:04 PM

RodaleInstitute-honeybees-4-13-2015

Rodale Institute is talking honeybees on the upcoming #plantchat. With the current honeybee crisis, it's timely to look at the role of honeybees and related pollinators in agriculture, horticulture and just plain economics! The list of crops that would fail to be pollinated if there were no bees is a long one; plants with showy flowers are meant to attract pollinators, thus bringing about fertilization and fruit set, and ultimately impacting our own garden's harvest.  

Since beekeepers first sounded the alarm around 2006, and with an estimated one third of vanished colonies, do you think it is time for the U.S. government to step in and do more to protect honeybees? What first had experiences have you had with honeybee decline?  It's another great topic and discussion in store on #plantchat! 

You're Invited to Tweet

Join @CoronaTools and #plantchat co-partner, Aaron Kinsman of Rodale Institute@RodaleInstitute who will host this topic.  The live chat begins Monday, April 13, 2015 at 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST, were we come together with green industry experts and fellow horticultural tweeps each week to discuss all things related to plants and horticulture, since 2014.

Discussion Overview 

5 Key Discussion Points about Honeybees: 

What do honey bees do for us in our gardens and food supply? 

What is the current state of the honeybee population? 

What is causing the collapse of honeybee colonies? 

Can anything bee done to reverse the trend?

Benefits of Shade Trees in the Landscape

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Thu, Apr, 09, 2015 @ 10:04 AM

AngelOak-Wikipedia-1Shade trees are both valuable and, if mature, nearly irreplaceable. It is delightful to relax under the shade of a tree with a large canopy. Distinctive shade trees are named, like the Angel Oak (right). Poems are written about shade trees, "I think that I shall never see, a poem lovely as a tree", documents are signed under them and if widely known, they are used as landmarks. 
ACTrees will discuss and quantify the value of shade in the landscape, and the trees that provide it on #treechat on Twitter. Bring your observations and experience to the chat and join in the conversation.

You're Invited to Tweet

How to Scale Water and Energy Conservation

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Tue, Apr, 07, 2015 @ 14:04 PM

MeterHero-4-8-2015-JainsJain Irrigation Systems LTD is the largest manufacturer of irrigation equipment in the world. This week Corona Tools and Jain will be talking to MeterHero, which runs the a water and energy conservation exchange. We’ll find out how MeterHero tracks savings, how conservation rebates are calculated, and how to get involved.

Founded by McGee Young, formerly of H2Oscore, MeterHero is designed to use price to encourage conservation. And instead of working through water and electric utilities, MeterHero works directly with end users and funds the rebates through private contributions. In just a few short months, MeterHero is already paying rebates across the United States and even around the world.

You're Invited to Tweet 

Join @CoronaTools and partner Jain Irrigation with VP Richard Restuccia @JainsUSA along with their guest, Meter Hero Founder, McGee Young tweeting as @MeterHero on #Landscapechat this week! Tweet with us on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 11AM PST/ 2PM EST. This is the Twitter chat where we come together with green industry experts and fellow landscape tweeps, each week to discuss all things related to landscape, since 2011.

Discussion Overview

Key topic discussion points:

1) The only way to solve the water crisis is to treat conservation as a form of supply.

2) Price works better when it’s a payment for conservation rather than a penalty for over consumption.

3) The water crisis is too big and too important to wait around and hope that the government solves it.

4) People already think they are doing a good job with water conservation. You have to empower them to do more.

5) Water sustainability is in our reach, but it will take a commitment to net-zero consumption. Reuse what you can, offset the rest.
