Houston, March 3, 2014 — Taylor Irrigation Service will feature an irrigation system on the Houston Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program for the second consecutive year when the tour opens on March 29. The tour is a unique opportunity to see six of the finest private gardens in the Houston market.
The garden that features a Taylor Irrigation Smart System is located in the Museum District at 1 W 11th Place. “We are very proud to be featured on the tour again this year,” said Taylor Irrigation Service President, John A. Taylor. “These are some of the top gardens created by the best designers in the state for some really amazing clients. We are just a tiny piece of the puzzle but it is an incredible honor to be represented alongside such talented companies and designers that share our vision of beauty, sustainability and water conservation.”
John Taylor became the first irrigation designer in the state of Texas, and only the fifth in the nation, to win the coveted EPA Partner of the Year Award in 2013 for his role in water conservation through his innovative SmartSystem irrigation design and the technology it uses. He went on to say, “I love that the public gets a chance to see that even the best, the finest gardens in the city, can use significantly less water. Water efficiency, conservation and the intelligent use of water does not mean lower landscape standards.”
Tickets are $35 for all six gardens on the tour or $7 per garden. No reservations are necessary and maps are available at the Studio & Community Garden at 1236 Studewood St. Proceeds from this Open Day benefit the Garden Conservancy and the Peckerwood Garden Foundation.
