When you’re managing a property, doing it profitably for both you and the property owner is paramount. What most community managers don’t realize is that water is the single most controllable expense on your property.
Liquid Technologies is here to assist you in managing your properties below budget, and even to help you develop a better budget.
Usually property managers determine their landscape water budget using the following formula:
- Last year we spent $50,000 on water.
- There is a 10% increase in water rates this year.
- Therefore our budget for this year is $55,000.
While that might make sense at first glance, it’s a simplistic approach that doesn’t consider what’s possible. If you have water-conservation professionals base your budget on square footage, plant types, irrigation efficiency, and moisture loss, you can have a budget that’s based on science, not “what we’ve always done.”
We are constantly looking for innovative systems, next-generation technologies, and the right management solutions to reduce your water usage, while maintaining the health of your client’s landscape.
We’re not a landscape company, nor do we want to be one. However, our experience in landscaping and irrigation distribution means that we understand the business of keeping your landscape and your water usage green like nobody else. We want to partner with you and your landscape team to help you bring your water under control.
Reserves and Budgets
For both new and aging communities, Liquid Technologies can assist in the budgeting process for capital improvements and other reserve studies. Technology continued to advance quickly in the last few years, and there’s a good chance that you can replace your existing irrigation infrastructure with more efficient devices for the same or even less cost than your original system. We are licensed to perform all types of capital improvements, but goal is to provide you and your community with budgets, specifications for the right products, and onsite support for your preferred landscape contractor.
