Water management is a sustainable way to utilize the existing water resources on your property by controlling their movements across your yard. It also reduces the risk of flooding and puts the water to beneficial use, like sending it across your lawn. We will consider all aspects of your land, including soil type, landscaping style, erosion risk, the location of any shrubs and trees present, and many other features to best design you a system that will save you water and money by being efficient. You could choose for your design to ensure enough water is spent on the lawn, on any garden areas or we can even build you a water feature to make aesthetic use of the run-off water.
What is an irrigation system and why would I want it?
An irrigation system is the process of controlled amounts of water being applied to your land when necessary. It will help to keep your plants and/or lawn watered with little to no effort by you as it regularly waters as part of the system. There are several different styles including drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation. These are our 2 most used methods. Drip irrigation is a system that utilizes low pipes along the ground, and only delivers water when it is needed; it has a continuous flow that allows water to penetrate deeply into the soil. A sprinkler system provides a more similar watering to rainfall. It distributes water by spraying it through the air.
What is xeriscaping and how would it help my yard?
Xeriscape is a system that uses plants that are drought-tolerant and water-conserving. They remove the need for supplemental water irrigation and are an excellent method to save costs and water use, by being smart with your landscaping. By working with our landscaping designers, we will build you a yard that is luscious and green- cactus and gravel are not your only option as commonly thought!
Water features are an excellent way to make use of any runoff water. We can build you fountains, waterfalls, and ponds; finding creative solutions to make the most of your wastewater. Often labor-intensive, and requiring pump systems/ other engineering methods, our design specialists will be able to create you the feature you dream of. Using high-quality methods and materials, your feature will be weather resistant and durable, keeping its freshly installed beauty for many years to come.
