IrriGreen, Inc. Joins the Georgia Green Industry Association

Manufacturer of Water-Conserving, Labor-Saving Lawn Irrigation Technology Supports Green Industry Initiatives in Georgia

MINNEAPOLIS, MN and EPWORTH, GA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - IrriGreen, Inc. and the Georgia Green Industry Association (GGIA) announced that IrriGreen has joined the statewide trade association. GGIA promotes and advances the economic, lifestyle and environmental benefits of Georgia horticulture. Headquartered in Minnesota, IrriGreen leverages digital control technology and multi-stream nozzle design adapted from high-tech, commercial inkjet printers. Like an inkjet printer spraying ink in controlled patterns on a page, the IrriGreen Genius® Irrigation System applies precise patterns of water in exact shapes on a lawn.

"Conserving water is a priority for our members and communities across the state," said Chris Butts, executive director, Georgia Green Industry Association. "Part of our mission is to educate about innovative technologies that can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of irrigation and reduce water use. GGIA welcomes IrriGreen to our roster of members who offer products aimed at conserving water and using it more efficiently in the landscape."

"In response to recent regional droughts and water shortages in the state, Georgians are making progress in decreasing per capita water use," said Gary Klinefelter, founder and chief executive officer, IrriGreen, Inc. "IrriGreen offers one of the technologies that conserve water and make landscapes more sustainable."

The IrriGreen Genius Irrigation System is the most fundamental advance in lawn irrigation technology in more than 40 years. In contrast to traditional systems, IrriGreen functions with one sprinkler head in the center of each irrigation zone and waters from the inside out. Just as inkjet printers spray ink in controlled patterns on a page, IrriGreen Genius® Sprinklers "print" water in precise patterns on a lawn. The IrriGreen Controller digitally controls the multi-volume sprinklers so the water streams follow the contours of the lawn -- conforming to every curve, angle and corner. By eliminating inefficient overlapping sprays and over-spraying onto hardscapes, IrriGreen reduces water use by as much as 50 percent.

IrriGreen is available to professional contractors in Georgia from SiteOne Landscape Supply, the leading wholesale distributor of irrigation, landscape lighting, nursery, hardscapes, maintenance products and supplies for the green industry. SiteOne has 15 store locations for professional landscapers and irrigation system installation contractors in Georgia.
