Water Wise Planting
It is no secret that California is dealing with water shortages and will continue to do so for at least the near future. This is a critical factor to consider when designing your new or remodeled landscape. Such reasons are why we make it a priority to include water wise ideas into your landscape. These methods not only reduce your long-term costs, but they also are also extremely environmentally friendly.
Water wise landscaping can mean many different things. Sometimes it may mean choosing plants that require only small amounts of water for healthy sustenance. Options along these lines also benefit you in that there is little maintenance that needs to occur. It can also mean planting grouping, which is the process by which we organize plants together that need similar amounts of water. This way, you never have to worry about overwatering and thus wasting more resources.
Plant categorization is a brilliant method for conserving water. This includes careful design of where trees are planted so that their shade lowers nearby soil temperature, resulting in lower water amounts needed. This could also mean growing plants in movable containers that are both aesthetically pleasing and easily moved into shade during high-sunlight hours.
Many people turn to alternative methods instead of real plants, but we always avoid turf grass. If you know how to grow and maintain it properly, there is no reason not to have beautiful, live green grass in your landscape. For those who love gardening, we make sure to give you all the information you will need to maintain your grass, even in drought conditions.
