Here in Southern California, water conservation is essential. However, without professional assistance, it can be quite difficult to maintain a vibrant landscape and conserve water at the same time. To make sure you can do both, Stay Green has outlined some of our best water-conservation tips. Implementing any of these ideas into your commercial landscaping strategy can help you conserve water and save tons of money.
Water Your Landscape at the Right Time
Watering your plants early in the morning or later in the evening is a great way to ensure your landscape gets the moisture it needs without excess evaporation taking place.
Install Ground Cover
Instead of vast grass areas, you might consider installing ground cover. Ground cover can resemble grass and requires much less water.
Below are different types of ground cover you can choose from:
- Pink knotweed
- Blue chalk sticks
- Trailing rosemary
- White creeping thyme
- Creeping Oregon grape
- Yerba Buena
- Eel river white California fuchsia
- Brown-headed creeping rush
- Dwarf juniper
Create Hydro Zones
By grouping plants with similar water needs together, you can avoid over/underwatering your landscape.
Mulch helps soil retain moisture, which can erase the need for extra watering. Not to mention it is also great at preventing weeds.
Invest in Water Conservation Technology
From smart controllers to irrigation systems to rain detectors, water conservation technology can make a serious difference in your water consumption.
