Richmond Nursery, Richmond, Ontario, is an eight-acre site that includes more than 15 gutter-connected greenhouses. Altogether, the site has one full acre under glass. At any one time, the facility contains more than a million plants of up to 1,000 different varieties under cultivation. All the plants require regular watering, light, and climate control, but the vast diversity complicates their care and makes reducing costs difficult. Natural Automation, Greely, Ontario, surveyed the nursery to assess its needs and met with the nursery’s management group about the type of system it wanted. Louis Levetsovitis, owner and chief installer for Natural Automation, decided a HAI by Leviton environmental control system was the best fit for the nursery’s particular challenges.
