National Contractor Success Story


Working for the nation’s largest integrated landscape company, with six divisions and branches in nearly every state, the professionals at ValleyCrest Landscape Companies manage billions of gallons of water each day. Although the company is enormous, each branch operates as its own, smaller version of the company, providing a higher level of local expertise while benefiting from national resources.Irrigation Advisors around the country take their jobs as stewards of the nation’s fresh water supply very seriously. North Carolina’s Regional Irrigation Advisor, Max Walker, is a 37 year veteran of the irrigation industry. An educated, active proponent of sustainability since long before “green” became a buzz word, he has devoted his career to improving the way water is used, both through his job with ValleyCrest and as a Smart Water teacher for the City of Charlotte. Walker was instrumental in market testing and perfecting the SmartLine controller in the early 2000s, Weathermatic’s first smart controller, which is now the world’s top-selling weather based irrigation controller.
