Gone are the days of traditional manual landscaping processes. These days, drones are positively impacting the landscaping industry. Their ability to capture high-resolution aerial imagery assists service providers with land resource management. And with their ability for vertical take-off, they’re the perfect tool for monitoring large properties as well as small ones of 10 acres or less, or properties in condensed neighborhoods. Read on to learn more about the advantages of using drones for landscaping.
How can drones help improve efficiency for landscaping?
Using drones for landscaping benefits all parts of the process, including the pre-bid analysis. With drone technology, aerial imaging lets you capture real-time imagery of potential project sites. This eliminates the need to send employees out to the site to gather the data needed for the pre-bid analysis. Instead, the drone captures all of the images and measurements you need, including area measurements and plant and tree counting, in real time. This saves time and money for both parties.
What does drone technology offer when it comes to landscaping imagery?
Drone technology allows you to embed high-resolution UAV imagery in your existing GIS programs. This is cost effective because you aren’t required to replace all of your technology. And this also means your projects will stay on track because you don’t have to switch over to new systems. Your process will only be improved with high quality images.
What else does aerial imaging do?
An important part of most landscaping projects is identifying irrigation deficiencies. This is challenging to do effectively when done from the ground manually. Using a drone can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of this part of the project. By using aerial imaging, drones capture aerial photographs, allowing you to easily and safely spot irrigation deficiencies. The images captured also give you the ability to plan for flood mapping, enhancing the overall quality of your project.
