LAKE FRONT LODGE – SENIOR LIVING CENTER

LAKE FRONT LODGE – SENIOR LIVING CENTER

Since 2015, J.M. Irrigation has completed several new senior living centers throughout Geneva, Lake in the Hills, Schaumburg, and Round Lake Beach. The irrigation company also branched out to nearby Grayslake to aid in the irrigation installation for Lakefront Lodge Senior Living, located on Route 120 in Grayslake, just a few miles west of Route 83.

J.M. Irrigation took a unique approach for this project. First, they set up a meeting with the owners and operators of the complex to determine precisely what they wanted to see from their new irrigation system. In coordination with a landscape architect, J.M. Irrigation was able to determine how much water was needed, and what fine turf areas would require irrigation. Armed with this information, J.M. Irrigation designed a system that would meet the needs and budget of the Lakefront Lodge.

With a focus on water efficiency and technology, J.M. Irrigation was able to irrigate most plants by utilizing water conserved from drip lines and water efficient nozzles. The turf was to be irrigated with industry standard irrigation products, such as the Hunter Ultra PGP’s and Hunter Pro-Spray commercial series spray heads.

The controller used for the irrigation system was an I Core controller from Hunter, which is capable of weather based irrigation control at the owner’s discretion. This unique controller has enabled the living center to enjoy a smart irrigation system that ensures a well maintained and healthy landscape, while simultaneously leading the way through water conservation.
