Rain Bird PEB Valves Just Got Sleeker and Stronger    

The best-in-class PEB, PESB and PESB-R Series Valves have a new look with a stronger bonnet for years of trouble-free performance in today's harsh, high-pressure applications.
Here's why you should try the new PEB Series. 
  • Temperature swings causing leaks? The new PEB Series have 65% higher leak resistance than competitive valves after extreme temperature swings.
  • High pressure blowing your top? With 20% higher valve burst pressure, high-pressure surges are no problem for the new PEB Series.
  • Losing too much friction loss?  Not with the new PEB Series. With 50% less pressure loss, you can rest easy knowing the system you install will operate as intended.
The new PEB, PESB and PESB-R Series Valves will be available through us in Spring. 

Be sure to ask for your copy of Rain Bird's 2016 Product Catalog to get all of their updates for the new season. 
 
Need Pavers?  Call Consolidated!
 
Consolidated Turf is an authorized distributor for Borgert products.   We offer pavers and retaining wall block products in all of our locations.  We can get you exactly what you need for your project with no hassles. 

Beware if you are selecting pavers at home centers.  They will be less expensive because they are lower grade.  They do not pass pressure tests and frost-resistance tests which can cause cracking and crumbing.  We carry only the "commercial grade" products that will give you and your customers lasting satisfaction.

Borgert pavers exceed the ASTM Test Requirements for Interlocking Concrete Paving Stone, assuring you optimal value.

It's Time to Order Tools for Spring
Ask Us About Our Tool Early Order Program    

A cheap shovel is seldom a bargain.  When it breaks, you've got an unproductive employee and a job behind schedule.    We're hearing from contractors that the low-grade shovels from the big box stores just don't hold up.

Take action:  Before the season starts, take inventory of your tools and then take advantage of our spring tool early order program.  



Your spring tool early order can get you ready for the season with shovels, grading rakes, pruning tools, tampers, sprinkler head trimmers, valve keys, mulch forks, wheelbarrows and much more.  We have access to the top contractor brands in the industry and can get you the exact styles and features you need.  

A pro-grade tool costs a little more, but can last for multiple seasons.  That's a smart bargain!

Compatibility with all major lighting brands makes the L-tool the only tool a contractor will need for every job.
