Conserva Irrigation Brand Story

When founder Russ Jundt started working in irrigation, he quickly got out of the industry after realizing how much water was being wasted with traditional systems. He began his hunt for irrigation franchises, only to find none existed. Check out his story, and how his frustration turned to success with the help of Outdoor Living Brands.

"While exploring different business opportunities, irrigation was last on our list of potential industries -- as I'm sure it is for most people. But becoming a franchisee of Conserva ended up being the best business decision we ever made. The success we've experienced in just three years has far surpassed all of our expectations, and we're more excited than ever to see what the next three years can bring. The support we've seen from both the growing network of franchisees and the corporate team at Outdoor Living Brands is truly unmatched. We've been provided with invaluable resources, insight from experienced industry professionals and best practices from the very beginning. You can't ask for a better "business in a box" than Conserva Irrigation."
