By: Tim Schuler
With summer right around the corner, there is no better time to start looking for landscape products to help make your annual upkeep a breeze. Here is the first part of our list of some of the most exciting landscape products for 2012.
- Node Irrigation ControllerNode is the latest battery-operated irrigation controller from Hunter Industries. Easy to install and program, the waterproof controller is especially suited for isolated sites, power-restricted areas or the special needs of drip zones, and is compatible with weather sensors.
- GasLess CGT400 TrimmerThe GasLess CGT400 Trimmer is similar to existing lawn trimmers in every way—weight, power, run time, price—except one: it doesn’t run on gas. It uses a prismatic high-energy power cell that can be recharged, making it emission-free.
- VAST Composite Permeable PaversBoasting 95 percent post-consumer recycled content, VAST’s composite
permeable pavers are made from tire scraps and plastic and are a third the weight of concrete. They also decrease installation time with a patented grid system.
- I-Lighting Landscape Lighting System
I-Lighting has introduced a collection of outdoor LED lights that include deck lights, path lights, up lights and more. The products can be wired together easily, using a single power source for an entire landscape light plan.
