On hot summer days, many property owners, farmers and gardeners wake to the glorious sound of sprinklers – giving their precious lawns, plants or crops the important irrigation they need to grow and thrive. Because Mother Nature can be unpredictable, and humans want predictable crops, gardens and landscaping, supplemental irrigation is often necessary. Ed Klaas and his wife Silvina founded Southern Sprinkler Systems in 2000. With more than 2,350 customers across metro Atlanta, Southern Sprinklers provides irrigation services for everything from residential properties and homeowners’ associations to commercial properties and parks, including Centennial Olympic Park, and everything in between.
With a shared belief that giving back is good for business and good for Georgia, business leaders across the state are coming together to launch the goBeyondProfit initiative to celebrate corporate generosity of all kinds. Our vision is to inspire companies of all sizes and at all stages to elevate giving back to a point it becomes the norm for all businesses in Georgia.
