Mill Run: The Grass is Greener

Irrigation systems are not all that common in central Ohio. They certainly are uncommon in homes under $200,000.


  • 496 properties single family homes in the Columbus Board of REALTORS mls are listed as having an irrigation system.   
  • 54 homes priced under $250,000 of 7278 properties .7%
  • 32 homes priced under $200,000 of 6401 properties .5%
  • 12 homes priced under $150,000 of 4903 properties .24%

Irrigation systems the 496 of  9,461 single family properties on the mls (multiple listing service) at 9:42 AM EST on December 19, 2011 total.  That is .5% 

The 9461 homes were all the homes in the Columbus Board of Realtors mls, all counties.  An irrigation system is just NOT that common. A green irrigation system is really rare.

The Mill Run website describes why the grass is greener in Mill Run:

Mill Run the big pond

"A master irrigation system with about thirty (30) miles of pipe and 1,700 sprinkler heads covers all street rights-of-way and pond easements. The system is designed to also irrigate all private properties within the 350 acre complex. The master irrigation system draws water from the central pond which totally eliminates the use of potable water and significantly limits the use of natural surface or subsurface water resources for the irrigation of turf and plant materials on the total project site. The irrigation system uses harvested or captured rainwater for watering all landscaped areas."

There is more information about the Mill Run ampitheater, the ponds, etc. on the Mill Run website.


The Mill Run development was built inside 270 in the mid 80s.  Part of the Mill Run mixed use development is in the City of Columbus and part is in the City of Hilliard.  I believe the entire Mill Run development is in the Hilliard City School District.  It is always important though to check the county records of any property you are interested in  to verify the school district.
