Keller Outdoor was awarded the subcontract for landscaping and irrigation at the new North Whitfield County High School. Keller Outdoor will be subcontractors under EMJ Corporation and will begin work early next year. Due to budget cuts, irrigation and sod will be the only stages implemented at this time, but all parties involved remain hopeful that future landscape plans will be installed. The original plans call for over 700 trees and shrubs and would transform the new school into one of the most beautiful campuses in the area.
The irrigation system being installed is a new step for the system. It will consist of a self-replenishing, "green" pump system that harvests rainwater in the detention ponds to irrigate the plants and grass. This advanced technique of irrigation will save the school system countless dollars in the years ahead on utility bills.
